Small pimples on scar after stitches

In December 2010 my daughter fell against the edge of our coffee table and got 2 stitches. I used the anitibiotic cream and then started using a scar serum. It didn''t work and I started using tissue oil. I often put sunblock over that as well. She now has fine pimples all along the scar. What can I use to get rid of the pimples and also to get rid of the scar?

The question is really what has caused these pimples. They may be the result of her stitches but she only had two of these so this is unlikely. It may be a rection to one or other of the oils you used on the scar.It would be best to ask the doctor who treated her to see her so that a proper diagnosis can be made about these pimples and their treatment.
