    Has the vet not given you a diagnosis? 'Sores' is a pretty general term, but if they are recurring, perhaps your vet could take a swab or do a skin scrape. A lab report could tell you which pathogen was causing it.

    OK Veronica, I see.
    Not the same breed but my girl was a bit yeasty last year, (saliva, lip folds and one ear). (Just checked and it was October 2019!) Our vet gave her a long-acting injection - sorry, can't remember what - and a two week course of Fluconazole capsules to start the following week. It worked really well.
