Default Paw and leg chewing

My boy Hank has been chewing his paws and the back of his back legs and around the base of his tail, a lot. Hank is 16 months old now and been on antibiotics 3 times now for infections from his chewing. His vet says allergies....to grass or food, (but doesn't seem to be too concerned) We haven't seen grass in 4+ months. I've changed his food, he now eats lamb and rice and was doing so well, but now he's back to his itching. He gets a bath every 2 months with oatmeal shampoo. He also takes Benadryl. Sometimes I wonder if this may be an anxiety thing as well? Help!
