What kind of bowls are you using for the food? If you are not using stainless steel, I would suggest you do. Other types of bowls hold bacteria..
 
Change the bowls to stainless steel and see if that helps. My dog had the same issues until I changed his bowls.
I change from stainless steel to glass when he already had that problem. I am thinking if it related to environmental allergies or food allergies‍♀️

Maybe you need another medication for the allergies. Ask your vet. The meds now are not working
 
I have an 11 month old male pit with really bad skin condition. I have taken him to the vet and they put him on 2 different antibiotics plus I rake him in for a shot once a month. I dont see a huge difference yet. When I look really closely to his skin it looks like he has a bunch of black heads or ingrown hairs. He has chewed or scratched his fur off on most of his body. I feel so bad for him but I dont know how to help him. Has anyone else gone thru this or does anyone have any suggestions ? He is such a good boy and I with him to be comfortable

Have your vet do a skin scraping to see what's going on. Post a picture
