lets stick with the allergies, it'd be better for your dog to rule out the most common. IMO.
but i suppose that could be it, but i wouldnt suspect it necessarily

Raw diets can be very good if made properly.......So yeah why don't you try that......dry foods I really don't like, but they are cheaper so most people go with them......

Yes change the diet, and grain free is the best - I usually don't go with something that isn't brand named - a name I'm familiar with, or have done extensive research on. You could even ask the store if they know what types you can go for, just steer clear of the brand names like Purina, Iams, and some of the lower quality.....

Yes, yes I know some people here will disagree with Purina being low quality......but the fact that your dog is showing signs of allergies, you don't want to choose those foods....

Don;t rule out chicken either. Turns out a lot of dogs are allergic to chicken,corn and wheat.

try to get something with lamb,duck or bison. It's easier for them to digest,and doesn't usually cause a reaction.

This was the result of bad food.

That is a result of food allergy. Not fleas. However fleas can cause that too,but it's usually more on the tail.

i would try origen, blue buffalo wilderness (which i use), evo.
all great food. worth the price. nismo could get a 35lb bag of food and go through it just as fast as the 24lb bag of the good food.
you dont need to feed as much with good food.
it ends up being around the same

looks like allergies and I would go simple first, try benadryl for about a week and see it helps. So if she is an adult APBT and normal size give her 2 benadryl twice to 3 times a day for a week and see if the itching stops. If it does it is seasonal or allergies not related to food. I am have dog who does the same thing and benadryl stops the itching. Also wash her feet with dawn soap and make sure it is not something she stepped in. The dawn will take all the oils and any irritant out of the coat but only do this once.

If she still itch's then go to a grain free food but it should take about 2-3 weeks before it gets completely better. Many foods build up in the system and it takes time to cleanse the body and start over.

Any good grain free food is ok you can even try a duck based food.

very true.
buttt if your dog is allergic to flea's, it only takes one.
so IF it was a flea allergie, which it doesnt look like to me too much either, it could be anywhere.
but from the pics i totally agree.
good post

Nearly a year later this has COME BACK ahhhhhhh!! But its on heavy pus in the pad/toes and lots of pus under her left armpit. It cant be food as shes been on the same food since forever lol. It was all fine last night and I woke her up this morning to hop into bed and she coulsnt walk on her paw. And her chest/armpit was 'soggy' with pus.

I've just cleaned it up and bathed it in some salty warm water (she didnt like it, as very sore for her).
Its messing with her nerves too. She gets like electric shocks into the paw.

I've got antibiotics on hand from previous vet visits, Ihope this clears it up
