On the visit where the Vet prescribed him an oral antibiotic, he did lance the original sore and drain it a little bit. That sore is now healed, but there are 3-4 other sores inside the wound area that are open sores.

Do this three times a day and try some baby cream that contains zinc oxide before he goes to sleep at night.

We have been applying Povidone Iodine every time we re bandage his wound. But we will still continue this method.

I would have this removed and biopsied. There is something going on and you need to get to bottom of what it is. Don't waste anymore time with honey and sprays, get this removed and biopsied. If your vet won't do this, find one who will.

We are going to take him to the Vet again tomorrow and bring up the topic or surgery, If he doesn't want to do it then we will go to another vet, I agree with you. We were just hoping it wouldn't come down to this.

USNEA ---- used as antibacterial , antifungal , effective against MRSA , flesh eating bacteria - will clean it out.
When that is done , then I would use the Vetericyn to clean out and help skin heal.

You can get manuka oil , you can get bees' propolis

Is this a cream or an oil, and do you think they would sell it at a Health Food Store?

Did you apply any flea/tick/HW spot on (topical) or oral (like trifexis)?

As long as it's oozing, infection is leaving the body.

This looks really yucky. I don't have any helpful insight except go to another vet ASAP.
We discovered that not all vets are created equal.
get a second opinion ASAP.
