Ok so, I think my dog has a rash. He rubs the area right above his tail absolutely everywhere and he whines and it really bothers me :/

And then when I scratch him right there he starts biting his paw vigorously.

Is there anything I can do for him? Is it just seasonal allergies? He's a beagle by the way about 2 years old. He had this last year and he scratched all his hair off and it looked like an M. And my dad said it might be mosquito bites.

Yeah I doubt it's mange. I think it's a yearly thing for him. We got him last year in August and he started scratching his butt everywhere, but around November he stopped. So it might be seasonal I guess.

My dog's allergic to grass and he's always scratching himself, which then gives him 'bald' stops.
I don't know why your dog would bite it's paw though when you scratch him.
Just bring him/her to the vet. =\

No he lived in Virginia, so I guess there was an excess amount of corn maybe? I know his previous owners tortured him, you can tell when you play with him.

my mutt has the same issue, it's a seasonal thing. he loses the hair around his ass whenever the temperature rises. don't sweat it

as for him biting his leg, you know dogs shake one of their hind legs when you scratch them. his legs are also probably being irritated by the heat, so they itch when he shakes his leg. again, don't stress out it's nothing

Him biting his paw when you scratch him doesn't sound right. Shaking is one thing, but biting is another. Definitely take him to a vet and tell them what's going on. There's a chance that could be a sign of a neurological disorder.

Could be the food alergy like you said, try and stop him from eating corn and see if that helps. My dog has allergies to certain kinds of foods, but they don't have the same effects.

It could also be seasonal if you said it happened around the same time last year.

I would take him to the vet just to be sure.

I would do that, but my stupid sister doesn't pay attention to that and she gives him Fritos. And the Grim Reaper sometimes he'll shake his leg back and forth, but mostly just bites his arm.
