Default Dog with itchy face/nose.

My 1.5yr old Lab/Heeler mix Cache has an itchy face/nose. It only itches at the end of her nose where she has whiskers and fur. It appears to be bumpy and i am not sure if that is from itching she has been doing. The vet gave my some anti-inflammatory meds that helped a little. I changed her food a few months before this started to happen (from Nutra Ultra to Chicken Soup) and am going to change it again to see if that helps (recommendations?). I donít want her to have an itchy face and rub all her fur off in that area. It is only itchy in that one area. Anyone have any input as to what is going on? Thanks for any advice. Jesse.

Does she get her nose in something she shouldn't? Like some kind of plant?

My dog gets an itchy face once in awhile, he scratches so much he injured the area under his eye, he had bumps too. They seem to be seasonal allergies, since they just go away after a few weeks and I haven't had to changed his diet. I do feed him a hypoallergenic diet, Wellness limited ingredient.

If your dog persists with his scratching, I would put a medical collar before he injures himself further. The vet can always do a skin craping to check for parasites, if you haven't done it already. Your vet should be able to asses if you need to do such test.
