Skin Problems made worse by collar

My 1 year old Amstaff has skin problem. He's had them since he came from the breeder.
They show themselves as bumps that look like mosquito bites and black scabing. They are itchy and he scratches at them a lot.
If he wears a collar the bumpes around his neck where the collar are get worse.

I have gone to the vet and he has been given pills once or twice but they always come back.
He is on a raw diet to promote healthier skin.

Anyone have any ideas what this is?


Is he in on raw diet or grain free diet?
Also certain collars aren't good with short haired dogs, get something rounded with no rigid ends.
