This warrants an assessment by your surgeon.

One possibility is that you have returned to full activities after a substantial forehead/scalp surgery.  The activity might be stirring things up.  To be safe, get yourself seen by your surgeon to make sure that noting more serious is going on.

Your problem is one I have have not encountered after hundreds of hese procedures .. It could be from an infection or reaction to buried sutiures or a fixation device .I take it  all else is doing well. Perhaps it is just due to your sleeping position or overly excercising.. If it is persisting, , continue to see your doctor.  You should ask your surgeon to get another opinion for himself if this does not resolve.
