Dojo with injuries

I believe my dojo is injuring himself somewhere in my tank. Originally I found the little "pimples" on his sides near the rear mostly, and I removed the ornament I suspected had caused them. This was first noticed a few days ago, BTW. I kept an eye on him, and it looked like he was doing better, but now he has several on his face and three or four only on his rear; he even has one on a barbel! What the... I noticed, however, what I think may be the problem. While I was doing a massive water change I noticed that he'd occassionally try to dig into the sand, but it isn't really deep enough. Do you think this could be caused by abrasions between him, a grain of the sand, and the bottom?
