Westie skin problems

Hey guys, I'm new here and I have a 10 month old Westie Toby who overall is a great puppy and never had any issues with regarding health. Around two weeks ago he got this rash and scab on his head which I didn't think of it as much until it moved to one of his eyes. Now I took him to the vet like a week ago but the vet wasn't so great she just said he had dermatitis and that's all and gave him an injection with antibiotics. It's been one more week since then and the rash has moved to his other side of his face and eye. He scratches it but not a lot. I thunk it's worth mentioning that I did found a flea but not on him. I was cleaning around and found it on the couch. I squeezed it and blood came out. So I bought him advantix II and bathed him with a flea shampoo. My only conclusion was that the flea might of bit him and he got allergic to it. I'm planning on taking him to another vet on Monday but I just feel so bad for him. He's not lethargic or anything, he acts like his normal self, but I feel so bad. I'm going to attatch pictures so you guys can see. Any help or advice would be great! Thank you

What did the vet say? Could be an allergic reaction from the flee bite or from food.
