I need advice! My dog has started having very severe itchy skin issues.

It started with her getting fleas around the end of July. We gave her a flea treatment. We have not seen ANY fleas since.

I also have 5 cats and zero fleas on them, zero itching for them.

Since then Trixie (my dog) has been super itchy though. At first we just figured it was a reaction from the fleas. But it has only gotten worse.

She is now having bald spots! She is scratching herself mad.

I have tried an oatmeal bath and a soothing spray, neither did anything to help.

She has pretty thin hair anyways, and I have looked over every inch of her body. I have also flea combed her. I am not seeing a single flea or any flea poop.

But there is this weird circle of dark specs on her belly. This is the only place on her looking like this. Which I think would be weird if it were fleas?

Nothing in her life has changed. Same diet.

Also all the itching seems to be on her behind & upper back thighs.

This is on her lower belly and it is the ONLY place on her that looks like this.

bad bald spots

Does anyone have any ideas on what this could be?
Is there anything I can do to help sooth her?
