Switch to free & clear everything- no more scented dryer beads, detergents & fabric softeners, floor cleaners etc. Also switch her flea medicine to a different brand, just in case. Ensure she has lots of toys and friends to play with, even the dog sitter dvd for inside. Spray bitter apple on the affected area after cleaning it and applying Dermasol or another topical. Also treat your lawn and do not let her out on it within 48 hours of treatment. I would also take her in for a consult with a trainer to see if it is just a bad habit from boredom or not. The Dog Channel on DirecTV might be a nice distraction for her. Good luck! ^_^
