It could be allergies or boredom. If she is scratching a lot as well or has small red bumps, it is most likely allergies (or fleas!). If not though, it might just be boredom. Give her a good walk or run and see if she stops doing it afterward. Sometimes burning more energy will stop behaviors like this. Hope this helps!

Allergies would be my number one pick for over licking of the body.

Food allergies can present as skin itching so it could've food allergies or an allergy to something like pollen. It could be something u r cleaning with as well.
