I would suggest taking him to your Vet, let them do a flea dip, and your Vet can decide if a steroid shot might be in order to provide relief from the intense itching. Then, as already suggested you have to consistently used a top flea med, this is no place to try to cut costs. Believe me your poor dog is absolutely miserable with the itching, and is counting on you to provide he the relief he needs and deserves.

Try feeding him food without soy in it. This can cause intensely itchy skin. Prednisone helps alleviate the itch but then watch the dog gain weight, or water. A friend's little dog was like this. She started reading labels and feeding more household food. It cleared up and dog was off prednisone within a month.

I was a feeder for over 234 dogs daily at the NSPCA I was trained to notice these type of symptoms. ... unfortunately vets don't follow the belief in the food allergies always. ... my opinion of your situation with your dog is this: food unfortunately is overlooked for the major irritants.... wheat soy and corn is your major ones. ... I suggest grain free food and it does not have to be expensive. ... remember to look at the ingredients 1st ingredient should NEVER be corn. .... I suggest looking into Fresh Pet Baked Grain Free : Freshpet Fresh Baked Grain-Free Chicken
Made with 100 percent fresh chicken
All natural with added vitamins and minerals
Made with fresh ingredients
Gently cooked to lock in nutrients
Made without chemical preservatives
Healthy dose of superfoods like spinach and cranberries
Doesn't include any rendered meals
Each recipe is cooked at lower temperatures, not over-processed, to retain essential nutrients
Find this recipe in the dry dog food aisle ... no here is the part many overlook. ... treats or wet food need to be grain free as well ... if your best friend is allergic the itching could be return with even a little amount you can find the food at Petsmart or even your local Walmart.... hope this helps
