Schnauzer skin issues

Hello all,

My name is David and my wife and I purchased a super handsome miniature schnauzer pup about 14 months ago. About 3-4 months back, he started scratching and seemingly constantly itchy. I finally took him to the vet after about a week or two of baths/benadryl/helping him scratch lol. I wont type the entire saga, but basically we have spent over $600 in 3-4 vet visits, antibiotics both a shot and pills given strict to routine every morning at the same time as per labels as well as steroid pills (i have the med bottles at home and can get the names later) as well as changed his food to the $27 bag the vet sells with minimal ingredients. All of this and my poor pup seems as itchy as ever. He also has had a rash/flaky/discolored skin on his eyebrows, tips of his ears and now seems to be spreading to his scalp.

The vet, to her credit seems to have my dogs best intentions and is very kind and loving to him when we go, I just dont know if she's dealt with something like this and can only imagine SOMEONE out there has dealt with similar skin issues.

Looking for any advice, he is such a loving pup, and it kills us to see him miserable all day???

Thank you in advance
