Weird Flaky Skin Issue

Hi everybody, not sure if this is in the right place. I searched this topic and read many of the threads already out there but can't help but post this anyway. I'm hoping some of you may have seen this before and can give me some advice. Anyway here are his stats...

Age: 2 years

Food: Blue Buffalo: natural chicken and brown rice recipe which I am going to ditch as other posts on this topic recommended kangaroo, salmon, venison or Raw. Also, I will try to introduce some omega 3's although I do give him fish oil with every meal.

Issues: hair loss on hear tips, excessive scratching, strange clump of dead skin on back toward the tail.

My poor dog, won't stop scratching. I took him to the vet about a month and a half ago and they gave me a special shampoo and conditioner to try out which seemed to help a little bit. I noticed today that he has this weird clump of dead skin on his lower back, above his tail. See pics. I am going to take him to the vet again but wanted to see your guys input.

Thank you for your time.
