Red spotting around tattoo with puss. Help?

I have red spots which look like bites on and around my tattoo, at first i thought i had just been bitten by something at work but they havent cleared yet. They have went down a bit but seem to be getting more little ones. They do puss but its more like a fluid like when you burn your self. i have had tattoos before and never had this problem. Any help would be much appreciated. Thankyou

Hi, it seems that there may be an allergic reaction to the dye used for tattoos due which fluid exudates from blood vessels.
I would suggest you to take a course of oral antibiotic and apply a mild steroid with an antibiotic cream on the affected part.
take care
