My dog is having this problem too, and he gets strange, small bumps on his skin, too.
He does NOT have fleas (as confirmed by our vet), and has also been on Frontline for forever. I have never seen any bugs, and Rascal is white (so they show up easily), and I check him thoroughly (because I'm paranoid). I have never been bitten by anything myself.
His anal glands are fine (as confirmed by our vet). His bedding gets washed frequently, with verrrrry little soap, and it's the same soap we've always used for him and has never given us any problems.
Our vet just gave up and prescribed him prednisone, but I'm reluctant to use it without figuring out the "mystery itches."
Vet said it's probably "some bug or something." ???
Anyone know of any bugs that can bite, but aren't easily seen?
