The only change we've seen so far is that they don't lick their paws anymore. In our quest for better food, we learned that obsessive paw licking can be caused by food allergies.
Paw licking can be attributed to any type of allergies. Both my dogs obsessively licked their paws in the late spring because the crazy pollen we had this year in dfw. I'd give them a Benadryl and they'd quit and once the pollen was gone they stopped completely.

In your case it sounds like the food, though.

It's ragweed season and my little guy is rubbing his face all over the carpet and furniture. It looks hilarious, but the poor guy can't even scratch himself properly! He literally gave himself a cataract by kicking that side of his face all the time. Sometimes it sounds like he's even hurting himself as he whines while doing it.

Benadryl helps, but it obviously doesn't completely do the trick as he still scratches a fair bit... just not quite as much.

And then he gets dry skin in the winter which also makes him itchy, but at least I can do something about that. He even gets an oatmeal bath every time he gets groomed.
