Default Horrible itching and some fur loss

So my girl Bärli has developed some allergies. She has infected scratches on her stomach and is having fur loss around her legs with red patches in its place. I took her to the vet and they gave her antibiotics and anti itch pills. I am just concerned that this isn't really treating the problem, only the symptoms. I've had her on the medicine for two days now and hope it helps. Has anyone else experienced this? I believe it's due to something outside as she is on a grain free novel protein diet. Should I consider allergy testing to really get to the bottom of things? I don't want her to be uncomfortable or in pain :/ thanks for any help
