You need to have your dog examined by a veterinarian.  Obtaining a diagnosis is the best way to save time, money, and treat your dog's pain the fastest.  There are several things that can cause dermal problems in a dog's paws.  Also these sores are likely secondarily infected with yeast, bacteria, or mites.  The underlying cause may be allergies, ringworm or dermal parasite, immune mediated disease among other things.  Your veterinarian will run several skin tests--a skin cytology, impression smear, and skin scrape.  Depending upon how the lesions appear they may recommend a skin biopsy.  Treatment will be aimed at the underlying cause as well as symptomatic care to reduce your dog's pain as fast as possible.

Hi my dog too has these sores. They clear up for a few months, then return. The best way for me to help him is the pet hydrocotisone. It seems to be painless and he won't lick it. I spray his sores three times a day until they all clear. They only seems to appear on one or the other top of his paws.

Go to the pet store and get a product called bitter apple. Then spray it in his paws. It wont hurt the sores. That should keep him from bitting them or licking them. But do it every day till they heal
