Based on your history it seems that you had soft swelling over upper dorsal spine which had ruptured and now you have neuralgic pain along the ribs ( dorsal radiculopathy).you need to visit Neurologist and require MRI dorsal spine to rule out structural lesion there (eg potts spine any abcess ) .Also requires complete blood picture with ESR for further help of etiology to present problem.You need pain killer, with neuralgic drugs for relief of symptoms along with antibiotics
