Default Best food for puppy with allergies?

I've been looking around for the last week trying to find a food that is easy on my wallet while also being good for little man. I've had him for a little over a month and a half and the entire time he has had inconsistent poop. He'll wake up with a bout of diarrhea, an hour after eating breakfast it will be on the firmer side and after eating dinner it will start firm and end like pudding. One whole day he will go and it's fantastic, the next day he will beg to go outside every 30 minutes to go (but probably half the time he just feels like he needs to).
When i picked him up he was on Purina One LBP. The first thing i tried to switch him to was BB LBP, that was AWFUL and when i actually started looking into BB i realized a lot of people have problems with it. after starting from square one again, we tried to ease into Nutro Ultra LBP and had the same problems but not as bad as with the BB.
Every time i switched i drew out the process for at least 2 weeks. After talking with my vet, she seems to think Atti has an allergy to something, be it grains, chicken etc.
So, my question to y'all is, what food have you tried works the best? most of the LBP formulas in almost all brands have some sort of chicken in them, from what i can tell. would you go grain-free? What would you do?
there is a boutique about 5 minutes from my apartment that sells Acana, Orijen, Fromm, TOTW, Merrick, Stella & Chewy's, Primal etc. They sell all of the brands i've seen on here. Price isn't too much of an issue but i would like to stay on the lower end if possible
