Welcome! I'm originally from FL, and have some family in Ft Lauderdale! There are many things that could be causing your dog to have this skin reaction. It could be anything from fleas, dirt, environmental allergies, food allergies, or some type of mange. Hopefully you can get approved soon, so that you can post in the Health Section to get more feedback. In there you will need to post everything from what food you feed, topicals/ointments you use, and pictures. Obviously we can't diagnose things via the internet, but there are some vets and people here with many experiences that can maybe help you narrow things down.

*Disclaimer* I'm not a vet, but this is my .02...

I believe it's iether an environmental or food allergy or combo of both. BARF/RAW is something you can do at home yourself. No need to order online, unless you just don't feel like dealing with it. Read these threads for help with BARF and RAW viewtopic.php?f=5&t=18048 and viewtopic.php?f=5&t=148939 the second link is a great source to help with transitioning to a RAW diet.

As for the hives that you are seeing, there is another thread about a recent member that went through this. Maybe it will be of help to you? viewtopic.php?f=5&t=150081&p=1974804&hilit=Hives#p1974804

There are many other threads here dealing with hives and allergies, as many of our dogs have them. One of mine has a few food allergies(Chicken mostly) and a Febreeze allergy that I have to be very cautious about. Just do some searches in the Health section and you will find tons of info.
