Super glued scar

A few months back i had my forehead cut open in a fight. It was a pretty bad cut seeing that the scar that formed is about a inch long. When it happened friends took immediate action and super glued my wound shut to avoid going to the hospital and to stop the bleeding. It worked and has successfully healed leaving a scar, but it feels like there's something inside my scar that's irritating so i pick at it. Now i have this bump similar to a pimp on the bottom of my scar. I'm not sure if its possible that a little bit of superglue was underneath my scarred skin but i feel like that's whats causing the itch and the bump. Should i just wait and see what happens like whatever is under my skin will come out or do i have to cut it open and extract it myself? If it ever led to me cutting open my scar ill to the hospital and get it professionally taken care of. I guess what I am trying to ask is is possible that i have something in my scar and will it come out by itself? What can i do?

Wow! That was pretty intense. I would definitely go see a medical professional about this. I'm not sure how long ago this happened, but I wouldn't risk anything to chance. In most cases, infection under the skin needs to be extracted out or healed with medication from the inside out (depending on severity and type)... There really is no worst case scenario in going in and having it looked at... They can a) treat you or b) tell you everything is ok. In the end, the choice is up to you. Good luck and I hope everything turns out ok! :)
