Continue the lotion given by the vet as he has analysed the dog's condition better. Meanwhile, just to make itching less irritating, brush the puppy's coat to remove the dead inner coat. First, use a slicker brush and brush the coat as long as your hands get tired. Then, use a bristle brush to remove any dead hair which slicker brush missed. The removal of dead fur, will make the coat condition less irritating and subsequently reducing the itching itself. If you are not familiar with these brush types, just type their names in google, upload their photos into a portable device and then show to the pet shop. They are easily available in market.
To give further relief to the dog while he undergoes treatment , after brushing the coat, apply Pet care's Notix Forte which can also give instant relief and make the coat less smelly.
I'd also recommend giving a good coat supplement ( the one I use is Nuricoat ). This hair supplement will ensure the new coat that's due to come will be healthy.
The diet you have suggested above looks just fine. Give a raw egg daily to the dog which is good for his coat.

this defiantly seems food allergy generally the elimination and change in diet helps , i came across a lab and he was allergic to chicken and grain my friend was feeding him , but in your case i'm not sure whats causing the allergy ,but since u have taken him to the vet he must have figured out whats wrong with your dog and as Navjot mentioned groom him for now to relieve the itching and and wait a little and see for the result if all of this helps and yes a gentleman told me this and so i'm telling u ,add a teaspoon of fish oil , or a capsule of sea cod in his diet , it helped my dog a lot with the itching problem , its a replacement to redimade coat supplement in the market .

Thank you Mr. Navjot Singh and Nikhil i will do the same actually i am very much worry as this is my first dog and i dont have any experience in the same but i would like to add regarding my vet that he did not examined him thoroughly he just gave him the vaccine and asked him chamber people to do the servicing of my puppy and he suggested me to give phenergan syp 5ml twice a day but few of my known person who are having dog and puppy both told me that phenergan is like a poison which can harm your puppy...
And one more question is hammering in mind mind that it is ok to do the vaccination and deworming while my puppy is having allergy pls reply as soon as possible as i have hold the deworming schedule for two days..

phenergan syp is for humans although its for allergies , either ways if your doubtful about it i suggest consult another vet , my personal experience i came across a few vets , they practice to earn money, and vaccination as far as i know is done to a healthy dog even if the dog has a little high fever the vaccination is not given , so i think a dog having allergy is not healthy, deworming i think you should do it cos many of the skin problems are related to the stomach , and try altering the diet , the allergy should go away !

Bathing can start after the puppy has been vaccinated, which is usually after 3 months. Puppy must be given, 6-1, Parvovirus, Carona-virus, Antirabies, and their boosters. Untill my puppy completed his vaccination, I would just brush the coat and give dry-bath even though he had ticks. I would just use a twizer and remove where I could find the ticks. Use a shampoo which has a strong anti bacterial and anti fungal properties. There are so many available in market. If it has ticks, then use Venky's Furfree. It was excellent on my Labrador. Use a rubber scrub and scrup it well on the coat so that the shampoo can work well into the skin.

Regarding training, the clicker training is the best and I find puppies respond very well to it. You can watch youtube videos which will help you how to use it. I'm not sure how old the puppy is, you have mentioned 13 month old, is it a typing error?

i bathe my dogs before they got their first shot ,i don't think its a problem in that, its never harmed them but make sure u use Luke warm water and that no water goes in their ears and when your done wipe them off and dry them off properly , use an oatmeal neem based shampoo it helps.

washing the head take care gently pour warm water from a cup over his head, from behind the skull, tipping his nose down so that the water runs down and away from his nose and eyes.
Put a small amount of shampoo onto his skull and work it around his ears and neck and under his chin, keeping the soap out of his eyes and mouth.

Don't bathe the puppy unless he is dirty or very smelly. Too much bathing strips the protecive oils from the coat.Don't be surprised if you see 'dandruff' while you dry and brush. Dandruff is a normal reaction to a stressful situation and means nothing, so don't panic.

And do one thing the diet your giving add 1 teaspoon of fish oil in it or a capsule of sea cod oil will give him the required omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids and see if the itching goes away
