I'm not Zeropilot, but I have been raising tortoises since 1958 and I do think your tortoise has Austwickia chelonae. It has all the usual signs which you will recognize if you read through the posts on the Yellow Bumps thread which was linked for you above.

No antibiotics have actually cured this problem, they have only prolonged the animals' suffering. If it were my tortoise, I would have it euthanized soon to save it from that long and gruesome fate.
@zovick, I hadn't replied because I have absolutely no information and even less experience with this particular disease.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

right now he needs to be kept dry. soaking him will only help to spread this. but if the bumps are back im afraid to say regardless of how he is acting sadly if he was here it would be time to make a decision for him.
