Our 1 year old lab is currently on 1 tablet of Apoquel twice

Our 1 year old lab is currently on 1 tablet of Apoquel twice daily and 2 weeks ago got a shot of convenia. Took him in on 5/31 for an area that he was itching a lot and had been chewing paws. Had been on Apoquel already and was on a lower dose. Vet increased Apoquel dose and put him on cephalexin (ended up getting bad GI upset from antibiotic that is why a week later he got the shot of convenia).We have been doing baths 1-2 times a week with HC Relief shampoo. Itching isn't as bad and had flaking and he doesn't appear to have flaking any longer. He has lost hair on his belly area. I asked the vet if we should test thyroid but was told our lab is only 1 and they don't see thyroid issues this young (have read differently). Checked for mites and nothing.Just concerned as to why he would be losing hair on his belly (just below chest area). Could a skin infection cause this?
