If it's not environmental, I don't think a medicated shampoo would help, however, an oatmeal bath and castor oil might give some relief with any discomfort & speeding up healing. The latter can be taken internally and/or rubbed on the affected area, and has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties.
Also, consider this dog may have some underlying autoimmune issue going on, and start lightly cooking the meat. bacteria does exist in raw foods fit for human consumption, and while some dogs handle it better than we can, others who may be otherwise healthy simply cannot tolerate the load. And if there is even a slight compromising of the immune system, the dog will not be able to handle raw meat at all. Don't dismiss that possibility even if allergy testing has come back negative.
