Are you giving her any treats during the day that may have corn, chicken,wheat, gluetin, etc. in them?
Have you seen any fleas?
Maybe she's allergic to the food in her raw diet.
Has her skin been scrapped by the vet and looked at under the microscope?
Just some ideas.

Could be allergies but I would also check in with the vet to have skin scraped. We had alot of trouble when we brought our puppy home, also a rescue. She scratched and itched until she was raw in places. The vet did a couple of skin scrapings. They were all negative but she was put on revolution for a type of mange to try and rule at least that out. The itching did go away but we also switched her to a fish/ sweet potato based food at about the same time so we never did come up with an answer as to why she was so itchy. You really should talk with your vet if you haven't altready

Maybe the vet can test the skin for you.
It sounds like mites which need treatment.
And the vet should find the cause.
Take her for a check.

Either allergies from the diet or she had mange when you got her and its getting worse from no treatment! Take her to the vet!
