This kind of skin problem can have a variety of causes. Your vet would also most likely take a skin scrapng and examine it under a microscope to determine whether there are nay mites involved, which is possible at this young age. In the absence of a diagnosis you can certainly use some of the itch relieving and soothing shamposs and products on offer, which are listed below.

It is unlikely she would develop inflammation and a rash around the mouth from a skin infection transferred from the pad cut.. Is anything else being applied to the cut toe that she may be licking off? Amoxil can cause an allergic reaction, usually more like hives, with laboured breathing and perhaps vomitting and diarrhorea in more sever case. The best way to test if the antibiotic is invloved is of course to stop administering it and see if the signs subside. If the pad infection remains severe obviously it would be best to consult your vet and perhaps change to a different class of antibiotic.

Yes there certainly are antihistamines and other products that can help with allergies, but they are all prescription only so must be provided by your vet. If the problem is intermittent consider also food allergy. Are there any treats for instance that you give only occasionally?
