I am sorry to hear of your predicament with your beloved Staffie.
Skin problems can be complicated and expensive to resolve. There are numerous skin conditions that may present as you have just described. If finances are a problem then you should consider visiting a welfare society or even phoning your local vet for some advice.
The basic advice I can give is that you ensure he is treated regularly for fleas/ticks/biting flies. See if you can get a medicated dog shampoo from a Vet shop or veterinary practice and wash according to the manufacturers instructions. If you find that there is no response then you need to seek medical advice.
