where is she scratching at? That is important in figuring what is going on. It may not be allergies but it could be.

If it is allergies you have to keep her on the benadryl for a few weeks to see if it helps. It has to build up in their system, giving it for a few days or a few times is not going to help at all. After they have been on it for a few days they will not get so sleepy. A few of my dogs have allergies and they are in high doses and you would never know it.
