If you are suspecting a food allergy I would discuss a hypoallergenic or hydrolized prescription diet with your vet. Over the counter LID diets are often contaminated with other ingredients, which can cause flareups in allergy prone dogs. The prescription diets are tested to ensure that this is not a problem. Usually, they recommend 6-8 weeks on such a diet before the allergen is completely out of the system and then you can slowly reintroduce other foods.

Environmental allergies (imo) are much tougher to get under control. Boots outside may help. Some dogs also react very strongly to changes in weather/temperature/humidity, and a humidifier or dehumidifier in the room where they spend most of their time can bring some relief. Good luck! Itchy dogs are no fun :(
