Could my dog be allergic to sweet potatoes?

I have one dog who has pretty significant skin allergies (or at least they seem so to me; I hate to see him scratching so much). He is a Lasa-Westie, and I know Westies often have skin issues. I switched him to Natural Balance as I was advised it was a good brand for dogs with allergies. Now he seems to be even more itchy and from doing some research it seems sweet potato can cause allergies (because of the hormones in them?). Has anyone else found their dog to have sweet potato allergies? I'm going to have to try switching to another brand, thinking of Merrick. I stay away from chicken as well as I know some small dogs have issues with it.
