|It seems to me that many Bichons have this problem a lot (called moist dermatitis), or at least I have seen a lot of them in practice! You definitely will want to take your pup to the vet and have them examined to be sure it isn't something more serious. Your vet will need to determine if it is a yeast infection or bacterial and then will provide an appropriate treatment. Some dogs need to have oral antibiotics, some can handle a cortisone spray, it depends on the cause! Your vet can talk to you about things that can cause this such as various endocrine problems and allergies and how to prevent future problems.
I hope this helps! Good luck with the itchies!
