Very irritable pug puppy

Hello, Iím hoping someone here might have some answers. From the day we brought our 8 week pug puppy home he has been constantly itching/ rubbing his genital areas. Itís quite manic when he does it and it canít settle. When you can distract him, he is a very happy, healthy playful little pup and very hyper which is I suppose is quite normal for a pup his age ( we also have a 9 year old pug who, if I remember, used to be equally hyper!). We have been back and forth to the vets and heís had antibiotics, anti inflammatories, advantage, worming, antihistamines and none have solved the problem. We have also changed his food to hyper allergenic salmon and potato. It just seems to be getting worse and more often. Today the vet had given him a course of prednisolone to take over the weekend to see if that helps and if not, then they will sedate him and examine him further. He took the first tablet 4 hours ago and has had no effect yet. Has anyone ever had a problem like this ? Any advice hugely welcomed. Thank you. Sophie
