Flare up of old scar, clear fluid and bleeding. How to clear it up?

Hi there.. I have recently taken out a horizontal piercing due to it rejecting and there wasn t much skin left holding it in. I left it a few months to heal before I then had a vertical piercing done on the same eyebrow,but the piercer put the needle just to the left of the scar tissue , but still enough for it to have gone through jst the edge of the scar. Anyway, I now have a problem with the old scar tissue now flaring up into a fluid filled kind of bubble, which either bursts via pressure, or popping it with a needle, letting the clear fluid & blood out. It then clears up, scabs, seems to be right for a little while but then repeats the process again. Could you give me any advice as to how to help clear up the scar tissue from the previous piercing?

Dear Concerned.,
Thanks for writing to us.
The repeated scarring due to healing and then repiercing has caused chronic inflammation over the area.As I have not clinically examined you I am not sure whether any foreign body for eg,beauty aids/ colouring agents used for your procedure have caused any rejection reaction/granuloma formation. The body has started its defence in the form of throwing up the unwanted FB/infection.
Pls consult a plastic /general surgeon who will first treat you with appropriate antibiotic and anti inflammatory drugs after Investigating you thoroughly with Pus Culture Sensitivity /Hemogram/BT/CT/Blood Chemistry/and urinalysis . If it warrants surgically to drain out the abscess and clear scarred area that also will be done by a skilled Plastic Surgeon.
Get well soon,
Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan.
