|I would be careful with topical flea medications. it has been in my experience they can be the culprit. My dog has skin allergies and he gets sores and scabs if I put topical meds on him.
I had him in a climate that could not support fleas and he had a great coat on Evo dog food. I moved to a climate with lots of fleas and put him on a topical flea control product from my vet. Milton began to itch a lot and his skin broke out. It did not get better until the product wore off.
He looks great now and he's eating a fish and potatoes dog food. I have been running a flea comb through his short coat daily and regularly wash his beds. So far no fleas.
i would rotate your food with different formulas than what he's eating now. When changing the food gradually mix in the new foods. I would stick with high quality products that do not contain corn, by-products, food dyes, ect. natural balance, innova evo, and chicken soup for the pet lovers soul worked with my dog's skin problems.
