It could be flea bite allergies, too. Frontline isn't perfect.
My dog had flea bit allergies when he was a puppy and bit off most of his hair near his back end. Fortunately, it was only that one season and never returned.
MY current dog has environmental allergies and it manifests as itchy eyes, and he is constantly rubbing his eyes on rugs and furniture and rubbing his fur off. Also a lot of feet licking
Another thing to consider. Is his skin flaky? Do you see dandruff in his fur? Maybe all those baths are causing the problem. Bathe less, and use a mild oatmeal shampoo.
If it is allergies the Prednisone will work. But it's not good to constantly give him Prenisone. You can get a topical steriod spray that works if the hair is sparse enough. I used it on my dog's feet because he had licked half the hair off. It worked in 2 or 3 days and that was fixed.
