Hi again, and thanks for your update.
I'm so sorry your first vet did not prescribe anything topical to treat the lesions. Is the oral med a pill or liquid? If it's a pill, you can bring it to a compounding pharmacy that carries 'bases' that are tasty to cats in flavors like beef, chicken, fish, etc. A suspension can be made according to the vet's directions for the dosage of medication, and it's much easier to give liquid, rather than tablet medication. You can wrap your cat up in a big blanket or towel, securing all four paws, with only the head sticking out. Go in from the side of the mouth where there is an opening toward the back, between the upper and lower teeth and squeeze in a little at a time, waiting for a swallow. You can encourage the swallow reflex by rubbing the throat, gently. Then, give a cat-healthy treat as a reward.
Call all local vet offices in your area and ask if they do the lime-sulfur dips, then bring your cat in. Once you find a vet to do this, and your cat is on the topical and oral med, things should start improving!
I hope things will go well!
