ADOPTED PITBULL itching problem

Hi, In January I adopted a pitbull mix from the local animal shelter. At that time he was basically hairless with a diagnosis of dermotopic mange being treated with ivermectin orally and oral antibiotics. Two skin scrapings have been negative but we are still scratching to bleeding. We recently started oral benadryl 25mg daily with no relief, oatmeal baths with no relief, sunflower oil 2 tbsps daily with no relief. I beginning to look internally. could this be related to his kidneys. He is only 7 months old and has begun to grow hair again a shiny black coat. no excessive drinking or urinating a good appetite, just the itching till he bleeds in some cases. The baths help initially then right back to itching in 24 hours or less. Please help. He is going back to the vet this Friday to be neutered. He is thinking a food allergy, I don't know. any suggestions? Thanks so much. Colby
