I'm so glad to here that someone else has this problem. Noah licked himself so much that he made a raw, dry, cracked spot on his tummy. I don't really know what caused it, maybe itchy, dry skin - since that part of him is the least protected. I try to use a little bit of organic, all natural lotion on his tummy from time to time, and that seems to help.

The scratching and licking was driving us crazy. Then we tried this combination: high protein/fat kibble (28/18), 1/4 tsp fish oil a day (we like Nature's Choice brand), and a weekly bath with vet recommended shampoo. We are much better. It's only the fleas that get us going now, and that's not often.
