One of my toy poodles scratches her face almost every time her face is shaved. Shes the only one out of 4 poodles that does this with the same size clipper being used. I think its just like some people being a little more sensitive then others? She scratches the area for a couple of days, gets little scabs then quits doing it and the scabs go away right away. I also use a #10 blade. You might want to try neosporin or something with an antibiotic instead of olive oil, it might help with the itch.
