After reading your history it appears that there might be secondary infection in the affected area. I advise you to not pinch or pop the area. You can apply a antibiotic cream such as gentamycin cream. If itching is or pain is present then can take benadryl or paracetamol accordingly. If still problem continue then can meet your operating surgeon.
