Tattoo infection maybe

I have tattoo on my chest for a while, but recently i have notice little white scars in the area of the tattoo like i scratched my skin off or something. I went to the dermatologist and they gave me hydrocortizone creme to sure the litte white scars that look like spots of my skin missing. Ive been cleaning the scars and using the hydrocortizone creme and have been seeing a difference , the scars are healing and slowing gaining its pigment back, except for this one scar that is a little deeper than the others and i think is infected because it has white puss look likes on the scar similar to what you see when you scrape your knee real bad and deeep what can i do so it can heal fast ?
