Dog Cornish rex with skin irritiation - Answered by Dr. Van Lienden

I have a Cornish rex with a skin problem. He gets little scabs, looks like small burns almost. I brought him to the vet, and they wanted to put him on a steroid. However, he has a heart murmer (hole in the heart) and if I do that, it could be fatal. However, if he gets one of these scabby things in his mouth, he could starve by not eating (although this hasn't happened, he doesn't have much weight to allow for loss). I've tried the vitamin E, a stick that looks like deodorant, food for a "healthy skin", but they are still there. They come and go in waves, but there is always a couple. If they aren't scabs, then they are bumps on the skin. Doesn't seem to bother him toooooo much, the little fella cleans a lot for not having hair though.
