Default Reoccurring Lump On Face


My hedgehog Higgs has been in and out of the vet for about a year now. He has a lump that keeps growing on the one side of his face where his whiskers grow. He has been prescribed Baytril twice for it so far (in increasing concentrations (20mg/ml than 30mg/ml)) and each time it has gone away completely by the time the prescription is done. It then returns about 5-6 months later. The vets in my area don't seem to have any experience with hedgehogs and I was wondering if anyone has had something similar occur.

I have attached two pictures of how it looks now (its just starting to come back)
