Default Flakey skin?

My 4 year old boy had really bad itchy flakey skin.
2 months ago I switched him to a grainfree diet (TOTW), he gets 2 fish oil pills and 2 MSM/Glucosomine pills every night.
He gets brushed every night or at least every other day with a slicker brush.
The temperature has been in the 30-40's for a while,
I take him to the river atleast once a week and he goes swimming.

I've seen a HUGE improvement with his skin and coat, but the flakiness is still not completely gone, he still bites his back and when I brush him I still get flakes. It's just in that area.

I don't know what else I can do for him, he is flea treated every month. Should I bathe him more? I usually do it every 4 months. I just got Burts Bees hypoallergenic shampoo.
