Default Lick Sores

Hi there!

New to the forum (I'll post an intro in a bit) and thought you guys might have some suggestions to explain and/or inhibit this behaviour. My dog is a 4 y/o Doberman, and he's recently started making lick sores on himself. It shouldn't be due to boredom, especially considering I've recently *increased* his activity and training. I've thought that perhaps it's due to sore joints or muscles. Itchiness is a slim possibility, considering his scratching hasn't increased at all, though I may trial benadryl over the next couple days. His first lick sore appeared a few weeks ago, on his left hip. Treated with polysporin and corrected any licking - it started to heal about a week ago. Now he's going after the inner aspects of both elbows. I found a cone, so he'll be wearing that while they heal up. I really, really don't want to deal with any lick granulomas. If you have any advice or suggestions to throw out, it would be appreciated. He doesn't seem to be adverse to bitter taste.
