    Whenever my dog comes up and licks me I have the most profound urge to scratch wherever he has licked me. For example if he licked my arm (which mostly is the case) shortly after I scratch like a madman at my skin. I have another dog and she licks me but I don't scratch when she does it, so why him? This has happened ever since I had him I think. I scratch almost half an hour after he has licked me.

    You're most likely slightly allergic to his saliva. Just wash your arm straight away and try not to scratch as much. You can also take an allergy tablet
