You know it could actually be anything!

Allergies (environmental, food), stress, fleas, thyroid, cushings etc...

If you take a picture of it and post it we may be able to notice something else.

When did it all start? Any food/environmental changes? Do you use harmful chemical cleaners on your floors/carpets and the dogs bedding?
