This link is what it looked like about 1 week ago. after the first round of Meds

These 2 links are of what it looks like today

I would get a second opinion. I don't know what kinda of possible things that could be.

Logically though, if it got better on the antibiotic and steroid, and got worse on the steroid only, then it might just need a longer course of antibiotics. Be sure to give your vet feedback on that.
