Have you tried a new diet? Benedryl is good for a one time reaction, but it just masks the symptoms, not addressing the problem. I started to do some research for you, since I know that you have such severe allergies. One thing I found is if you give a tsp of local honey to the food, this will help build antibodies against the local allergens. It has to be a honey made near you since its the local plants. Did you have an allergy test done?
Another thing you could do, to find what foods bother you, is to make the food. Give mushed sweet potatoes and fish for one meal or boiled chicken and sweet potatoes and see if that bothers you. Eat this meal for four weeks and see if your symtoms start to improve. If so than you know that you aren't allergic to these foods and you need a very basic food or just have your mom cook for you. I think cooking food is great for dogs with allergies. Its not that difficult and can actually be cheaper than dog kibble. You can add a dog vitamins or something like dried kelp to give added nutrients and a fish oil for coat conditioner. I hope you are on the mend and see if anything like this works for you. Also here are some sites about dog allergies and what has worked for them. These are a must read.
