Okay. I would try applying hydrocortisone cream to the lesions twice daily, and triple antibiotic cream to them twice daily in between the applications of hydrocortisone. Sometimes the blood flow is not great to these masses, and so the oral steroid does not penetrate well enough. Give that a try.

How do you prevent him from licking

Put a T-shirt on him, or purchase a cone collar from the pet store and have him wear that.
