As it is the at the site if inj BCG, abcess formation is the normal course. There will be vesicle formation followed by pustule then it will heal up with a scar left over there. Nothing to do, utmost a course if antibiotic may be given

Once healed BCG scar can not be routine ly acceptable. To be investigated for Immunodeficiency by SIgGand IgM, CRPand ESR, CBC. Culture from Abscess site. Review all reports.
Small abcess is there Look for axillary LN Treat with oral antibiotics (amoxicillin) for 7 days
Papular urticaria with secondary infection Mupirocin ointment for topical application
