Default Allergies and food

I am trying to figure out what my boy is allergic to. He has constant ear infections and itchy skin. I am now trying to switch to a fish based food away from chicken. The current food is BB Wilderness Chicken. I was thinking of switching to Natures Domain Salmon and sweet potato. But the ND has chicken fat in it, albeit fairly low on the ingredients list. Will this be a good change or should I look for something with no chicken whatsoever in it?

If you think he is allergic to chicken, then it would be better to stay away from the foods that have chicken in any form. I feed Solid Gold - no chicken - no grain.

There are so many variables at play when trying to determine an allergy....my only thought is...to the best of your ability, only change 1 variable at a time.

How old is the dog ?
