Also the food makes a big difference! Grain free!

watch his belly with the roids, screws up my boy. Like the wake me up at 3 am need to go OUTSIDE NOOOOWWWWWW type of screw ups. Its totally trial and error, keep in mind food changes take 6 weeks to even see a difference if its food related. The roids witll help the breakout, but not from them coming back. SO try to make a good quality grain free kibble while you ahve the chance to make the slow transition.

Acana Pacifica would be a good place to start. Mak sure you transition foods slowly to prevent an upset tummy.
Suppliment with Fish Oil or Coconut Oil.
Give it 30 days to start showing any changes.
If it were my dog, and it has been in the past, I would skip the roids, and just use benadryl for bad days until the 30 days is up. Zymox makes an amazing shampoo and conditioner too that will help with the itching and swelling.
I don't like putting my animals on steroids unless ABSOLUTELY necessary, bad for the liver and kidneys.

Yeah, blue dogs tend to have bad skin issues. I feed Acana as well, and Odin does wonderful on it. When I first got him from the shelter he had the lil pimple like bumps on his head but I haven't seen them since I switched to grain free. And I can say I won't buy anything else now.

looks like mange to me. but only a conclusive skin scrape will tell. sometimes it takes more than one scrape. and the pimples are actually infected hair follicles which are also a common symptom with mange.
i prefer a treatment that involves ivermectin if the case is serious. but home remedies and hollistic treatments can also help.

Yes, but not until you see an improvement. You don't want to introduce too many things without first determining the cause of the issue.

I would NOT put motor oil on any of my dogs!! I have found an ointment that works well for the mange. If you go to petshed.com it's called Goodwinol Ointment. No prescription needed. Also, the red boxed Revolution flea, tick, heartworm preventative also has an agent that kills the mange. Three of our pits had mange and these two things took care of it no problem! Hope this helps.
