There are so many things that could cause rashes, your vet is really the only one who can diagnose it.

Some dogs can have a strong reaction to a single flea bite...or it could be a staph infection, or parasites...why do you think it's not an allergy? You don't say where on his body he gets this - young dogs actually get a sort of acne sometimes, around the snout and chin.
