Blue Pit Skin Issues

I know everyone & their mom has brought up skin allergy issues with pits, but I need some help & everyone’s situation is a little different... so here goes.

I have a super handsome 1 year old blue male pit who has some skin issues (I’m assuming allergy related). Right now they aren’t too terribly bad, but I’m afraid of them getting worse the older he gets. I have noticed here recently that he has pimple-like bumps on his back. He’s always had these on his stomach, but now they have spread. He doesn’t scratch them. I feed him Zignature Salmon flavored dry dog food & coconut oil. He takes oral flea & tick medicine every month. We live on a farm in Tennessee (home of every allergy under the sun).

I know blue pits have skin allergies & always will, but I’d love some suggestions.

How long have you been feeding that? Have you tried switching to see if it's something in that food?
I have an allergy ridden dog as well. The issues never completely go away when they're as bad as mine. I transitioned to raw. Every kibble I tried didn't help. He still gets his morning zyrtec and he still needs a second dose in the spring, but for the most part it's under control.

He’s been eating that food since he was probably about 6 months old, but from what I’ve researched they can develop an allergy to just about anything. He just turned 1 & I’ve read that their allergies worsen at that point. I’ve considered raw food. Seems like it gives the best results.

Diet change is always the easiest to try first.
I personally feed prey model raw. So I know exactly what my dog is eating. Grinds tend to add "supplements". I found what works best for my guy. Some dogs do well on kibble, just have to find the right one. Some dogs do OK on grinds. It's essentially a process of elimination.
