then apply calamine lotion to the areas that he is scratching.
Caladryl (calamine) lotion is not recommended for dogs as it can actually be toxic to dogs. The most toxic component is zinc oxide.
Zinc can cause stomach upset, vomiting and diarrhea. However, this usually is only a problem if the lotion was eaten.
While repeated ingestion of zinc oxide can cause serious problems a few licks of lotion is not likely to be life threatening.

My largest dog (85 lbs) eats a little less than 3 cups per day. Just for a comparison.
Your dog's allergies COULD be environmental, but if it's all over his body, and year round (not seasonal), I suspect food.
I also like the mention of exercise. The lack of good, daily exercise could very well be contributing to what you're calling "separation anxiety". I don't think it's really separation anxiety (unless he's eating the couch and tearing down the drapes).
Other sources include calamine lotion, suppositories, shampoos, zinc undecylenate (Desenex), sunblock containing zinc oxide, fertilizers, and paint.
In cases of short-term exposure or when smaller amounts are ingested, signs include vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite, abdominal pain, and generalized depression. With long-term exposure or when large quantities are ingested, signs also include severe intravascular hemolytic anemia, blood in the urine, jaundice, weakness, multiple organ failure, and death.
