It sounds like food or environmental allergies, and it could be a combo of both.
To see if it's food allergies you'd need to do an elimination diet, pick either a LID (Limited Ingredient Diet) food like Natural Balance, home cook for him. Whichever you choose you need to find a food that does not contain the protein and grains that were in his old food and treats. So if his old food has had chicken, beef, fish, and rice, you'd need to find food and treats without those ingredients. Feed the new food to him for a month and see if his skin clears up, if it does then it's likely the food that causing the skin problems, if it doesn't it could be an environmental allergy. If it's the food then once the month is up you can start introducing new foods to him one by one to see which he's allergic to. So one week you may feed him some chicken and see if he reacts, the next week beef, and so on and so forth.
