|My first thought was that this sounds like an anxiety behavior.
My next thought was it's possible that between her toes she started with an infection, (yeast or other bacteria) and has chewed the underside of her paw (her paw pads) in the attempt to get between her toes.
My following thought was that she has come in contact with something that irritates her paw pads or that she is allergic to and the resulting discomfort causes her to chew her pads.
That she has chewed herself raw and that there is a smell coming from her paw pads leads me to think there is already the infection in her pads. She will need at least an oral antibiotic and a good cleansing. Probably your veterinarian will want to swab and culture drainage from the wound to determine what type of antibiotic to prescribe.
