I will try the Benadryl to see if it helps. If it's indeed allergies (not food related) does he/can he stay on Benadryl for how long?
The food allergy I am not sure what to do anymore, as I have switched him to 3 different dog foods, and nothing seems to help.

The raw diet thing will be my last resource. I'm getting tired of failing in every attempt to get my buddy better...
