Oh my. Ours does too, we can't figure it out. Right now he is on allergy medicine. I say take yours to the vet and see what he/she suggests to help make your dog comfortable. We give ours a bath once a week and that helps him for a little while.

What I did to my JRT is give her a bath of cold water two to three times a week with 3X soaping. It relieve her of the itch. and when the fur starts to grow give her boiled egg yolk two times week

It needs immediate check-up. If there are red patches too on the skin, it can be Psorosis. So just get it checked up to diagnose the type of skin disease.

My jack russell used to have the same problem too, and we took her to so many vets. It seems that they are prone to this problem... Her problem was stopped when i started bathing her using cold water with premium shampoos... I used to bathe her in hot/warm water... It could also be due to allergy...
