NEW into feeding raw, don't know where to begin

Hi, I know there's lot of threads and I will try and read more later. Seems confusing and time consuming but if it stops his non stop itching I will make time for his meals. We've been to the vet and got flea meds and antibiotic which seemed to help short term but now he just itches and itches so we started him on benadryl until I get this figured out and FAST!!

He's on dry kibble now from Costco, grain free: Was salmon & sweet potato and now on Meat grain free. His treats: Carrots, hard boiled eggs usually and raw dog bones for a nightly treat.

Is there something easy to start ? I'd upgrade to another dry kibble to like 65.00 a bag but if raw is better I'd rather spend my money that way... he's got to get some kind of relief!

BTW: He's 1.5 yrs old and just itching his skin off and looking skinny.

Thank you, any comments is appreciated

Please just have allergy testing done, especially environmental.

You may also want to have him checked for yeast. That can cause awful itching.
