Looking for info/dx on the inflammed, pink lip pestules as well

Hi. I just found this site and registered. I have an eleven year old basset hound/beagle with the exact same issue. He's had pink/reddish inflamed pestules on the lips before and they resolved on their own within 2-3 days. He was never bothered by them. This time however, he seems to be itching at them with his back legs and front paws and this has caused them to bleed a little. He's generally very healthy with the exception that he has diabetes incipitus and he drinks very large amounts of water.

Did anyone ever obtain a better diagnosis on this? I'm not fond of prednisone and would only try that as an absolute last resort.

Thanks so much, Heather
