Could be dry skin or an allergy. Try bathing them with a hypoallergenic pet shampoo.

She might have sensitive skin, allergies, or hot spots. Try washing her with a dog oatmeal shampoo. If it gets worse, take her to the vet and they can prescribe medication.

Most likely this is from allergies - if it gets bad - take them into the vet to see if he can get prescribed meds.

there is a list of things... fleas, ticks, allergies, a reaction to something, dirt, or just itchy. Check with your vet if you think it's getting worse..
