What breed of dog is he? I have heard for instance that Bulldogs suffer commonly with allergies.
It might be helpful to try him with a dose of childrens Benadryl. I am really not sure of the dose. I'll take a look in the archives (I seem to remember a post about that sometime last year) and post back if I find out anything about dosage.

Another thought is -could he have something either embedded or stuck in between the pads of his feet? Take a careful look at his feet, to see if anything is there.

The dose for benadryl is 1 mg.per pound.  A 12 pound dog can take 1/2 of a 25 mg adult human benadryl tablet.  A 25 pound dog can take 1 adult size human benadryl etc.  Only breeds below 12 pounds need pediatric benadryl.  Benadryl can be taken 3 to 4 times per day.
