As with sneezing [above] pigs do sometimes just like to have a nice scratch ! Again, check for other symptoms such as: is there any hair-loss or bald areas, is there scurfing of the skin, are their any small scabs, can you see broken hairs or does your pig appear irritated / in pain when being handled ? These symptoms, accompanying the scratching, could point to a fungal or parasitic condition - If you suspect this then please take her to the vet asap for a proper diagnosis and treatment advice.
