I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you upload a photo of the open weeping blood spot to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if that icon is visible) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com. I'm picturing either a ruptured abscess or pyotraumatic dermatitis ("hot spot") which is caused by his scratching or biting himself raw. Either could make him painful enough to become anorexic.
