My small dog has begun to itch, and be in discomfort today. He hasn't been sitting still for very long as he gets up and drags his behind or scratches. I looked and I saw slight swelling of the genitals. I also saw a small red patch. I'm thinking a bug bite, but see no obvious marks of one occurring. I gave him a tad bit of Benadryl. I don't believe it is doing much of anything. Allergic reaction was mentioned, although he has not eatin anything.

Your dog needs to be seen by a vet ASAP.

I agree see the vet it might be infected anal glands but deal with it immediately so it does not get worse and cause your dog more pain.
