|I have one dog not bothered by fleas and onea with severe allergy to them. Lily (not) is on Frontline Plus and Moira (my allergy baby) is on Vectra D. It seems to work better for her. She also is allergic to some weed that blooms in July. The itching started yesterday and she already has a bald spot. I gave her Chlorotrimton this morning and so far so good today. My vet feels Chlorotrimton works better than Benedryl. He had just come a conference on allergies when Moira first started having problems.
It sounds like your problem is fleas. If you have seen one, there are hundreds in hiding and reproducing. You need to treat every corner of the house, every piece of furniture, wash all bedding, etc. Several years ago, I had good luck with borax and salt mixed followed by Cedarcide spray with a flea collar in the vacuum bag - that's the only use for flea collars, IMO. Too toxic to touch the dog.
