Welcome to the forum.
Sorry to hear your girl is itching, to me it sounds like a possible reaction to something or allergies, but I am not a Vet. Good that you're taking her to be checked by your Vet.

Hope she will be doing better soon and it's nothing serious.

Do you have Benadryl at home? You can start off with giving her one tablet and see if it helps. Being puffy around the mouth makes me think maybe insect bite? Have you called your vet to get his/her input? That would be my first move.
My 2 year old had a swollen muzzle not too long ago after messing with a wasp. I gave him Benadryl and it went all back to normal.
