I would try the warm compresses, some also do 'sitz' baths in epsom salt warm water.

Less licking is good, but you want to keep a close eye on it so it doesn't "blow"..

If this course of antibiotics doesn't work,I would seriously consider removing the glands before they back up/start developing fistulas..
