Oil getting trapped under scars?

I've been on medication for acne for awhile now (Differin), and I rarely get actual pimples anymore. But on a few occasions, the areas under my old acne scars got unusually puffy with oil trapped underneath. Since it's not really acne (just trapped oil), topical acne creams don't help. I usually just have to squeeze the oil out manually and break the skin a little bit, otherwise it doesn't come out.

Does anyone know how to open up the pores of the scarred skin so that it naturally drains the gunk better? I hate having to squeeze.
