Welcome to HCM.
It will gratually increase by pushing because of spreading of infection in soft tissue.
Don't push it more.If it is leaking than go for dressing .Certain antibiotic course is required for complete healing otherwise there will be recurrence.
Consult surgeon for better line of management.
