Has the vet said it is specifically flea allergies? That is the most common kind of allergies in dogs, followed by environmental allergies to things like grass and pollen. https://thedailypup.com/my-dog-is-itchy ... allergies/ It does sound like fleas, and the best way to prevent re-infestation is to keep them on a flea preventative treatment and make sure you wash all the bedding regularly.

You said that you got limited income, maybe you can try coconut oil. You can try by applying on the dog. I've read many facts on the internet that coconut oil good for dog skin (allergies). But I think maybe consult or ask the vet first. This is just an alternative treatment.
