If he is allergic to meat in TOTW he will be allergic to that meat in any food. There is an allergy test you can buy, but it is spendy. Could save you a LOT of time trying to figure it out with trial and error though.
Changing foods, even if there are no allergies to a new food, can trigger skin issues simply because of the change. I do not personally like science diet, I think TOTW is a better food. But the best kibble available, IMO, is Orijen. I would suggest sticking to one brand, a GRAIN FREE brand with NO fillers, then trying one of their recipes for at least a month unless you notice an immediate bad reaction. Change the recipes by protein, for example, start with beef, if it doesn't help move to chicken, then lamb, then fish etc.
I feel the most common allergy in dogs is to chicken, that does not necessarily make them allergic to turkey and duck, though.
