Hi there-

It sounds like you are dealing with a serious case of razor burn being made worse by him licking at it. You need to apply a cool wash cloth to reduce swelling, put a cone collar on him to stop the licking, and have your vet prescribe an antibiotic creme. Until you can get to your vet you may try some triple antiobiotic creme or neosporin. The key is to get him to stop liking so cone collar it is!

I hope that helps!
