Help! What's causing the scratching?

I am sure many of you have a dog that have had some type of allergy. I hope that someone can give me helpful advice without spending a wad of $ at the vets office like I have the last few weeks.
I have a 4 month old shih Tzu that scratches and bites herself. She was on an antiboitic and that did not help. I have changed her food once and am limiting her baths. Anyone have a clue where I should start? I gave her Benedryl tonight and I hope this will make her stop. Fortunately, she hasn't bleed or had serious redness issues.
