Hi There, 


The pain should be getting better, not worse. Although it is uncommon, this could be a sign of infection. I have seen late infection where people can have loss of fat. I suggest you have the area examined. You may need antibiotics. One antibiotic I have had success with is Ciprofloxicin. 

I hope this helps,
