Mt dog has very bag food allergies. We aren't even sure what exactly she's allergic too but we tried (with the help of a dermatogolist and a vet) every "good" food and nothing helped. I was literally cooking for her at one point (with two small kids at home) and she was on steroids for a year straight. After switching her to bravo raw diet she cleared up. No more ear infections, bloody paws, sore on her skin, ripping her hair out, alllllllll better! I know every dog is different but this helped her. If I switch the protien she will get ear infections so we stick w turkey. If I give her dry regular food it comes back. One vet said she's one of the worst he's seen lol! Lucky me. Hope you find the right diet. I'd avoid chicken, beef, corn first read all labels because sometimes it says turkey but has chicken parts or something weird, a single source protein and no corn would be where I woukd start. Good luck it's hard!
But with the right diet you can get your pup off meds. Mine hasn't taken steroids in a long time. (on them now for something else.) oh and one thing I've found is a lot of vets really aren't knowledgable on food allergies. It sucks but is true.
