My recommendation is to make an appointment for a veterinarian to examine him. They may need to perform some testing to determine the cause of his skin issues. There can be many causes of itching in dogs including fleas, allergies, and infections to name a few. After a complete exam, the vet will be able to discuss with you the best path forward to heal his sore and stop his itching. When something has been going on for this long it can be a longer process to heal. I recommend bringing your dog to the vet when you see the first signs of an issue to prevent further issues from developing.
