Having gone on that long, I'm kind of shocked your vet didn't seem more concerned. You definitely should get a 2nd opinion. Maybe an antibiotic is in order, either in pill or liquid form, or even a shot.
I had a dog that had something similar happen and the vet thought there was something in there that formed it and was keeping it from healing. My dog was due for a teeth cleaning anyways, so while he was under, the vet cut into the cyst area and cleaned it out and left the larger cut [which wasn't very big, opened but covered with gauze bandaging so it could drain and heal from the inside out. I don't think she ever found anything in there that was irritating the wound, but what she did worked.
For a little while I had to wash and rinse it several times a day with betadine solution. It healed up in a few weeks.
