Default spine dandruff/bloody spots!? help!

ok quick breakdown,

my man is 1.5 years young

has been on blue wilderness for the majority of his life

gets 2 pumps of fish oil with every meal (4 pumps a day)

took him to a groomer recently (this is where the issues started)
when i got him back, i noticed him acting weird when i would touch his spine, the next day he would cower when i would touch his spine so i moved hair and looked and saw bloody scabs all down his spine.
*please notice that i left out my convo with the groomer to keep it PG13*
we are here about a month later, i thought his back was healed up and im brushing him, i get to his spine and he starts walking around me trying to get away from the brush and i just hold him and say stay! like a good dog he does and i brush him down his spine and YEEELP!!! and i feel like the biggest puppy beater in the world... his spine has massive clumps of dandruff and a little bloody spot where i had just brushed him. ALL down his spine theres the dandruff and rough looking skin... any ideas?

edit:
he also has itchy ears, the vet could not determine from food allergy or what. but i will be switching to orijen very soon. could this be related to the skin issue?
p.s.
i did use the search function and google and found nothing like this..
