So it might be itching? And is it spreading? I think I'd at least have them check for mites. It could well be an autoimmune reaction, but I think I'd want to have some things ruled out before treating for an autoimmune reaction. If it's an infection or mange, treating with steroids (which are often used for AI reactions) could be harmful.
