Itching Doberman

My 2 year old male  (white) doberman has been on antibotics and prednisone for the last year.  He is constanting scratching and licking his flanks.  He did have thick mucus like goop coming out of his eyes but this has been controlled by eye drops.  He has been tested for allergies including food and nothing has shown up.  He has had skin scrapes and a thyroid test, still nothing.  He will be going in for skin biopsy next week.  What do you think is causing this skin irritation?

My doberman has the same problem and we have gone through the same tests and found nothing.  Have you found out what the problem is yet?  We are desperate to help him and the prednisone makes him fat/sleepy.

Had to take my albino doberman to the University of Wisconsin Vet Clinic; they did a skin allergy test; got  tested for 75 different things; found out that he is allergic to mold, dust, walnut trees, pine, red clover pollen, mulberry.  He is now on allergy injections for his allergies; he has prescription dog food which is salmon and potatoes; instead of giving him benadryl for his allegies he is now taking Hydroxyzine twice a day; he is also on Cepholexin for his skin infection; and is using artificial tears ointment for his eyes.  All in all, he is doing much better.  I also ordered him a pair of doggie goggles for when he goes outside to protect his eyes since he is an albino dog.
