This happened with me, too, and caused the scarring to be considerably deeper. The formation of new pimples on scars suggests you are not keeping the wound free of bacteria and it has become infected. Try to keep the wound sterile by using effective antibacterial agents. I've found natural antiseptics such as manuka and tea tree oils and manuka honey to be more effective than over-the-counter antiseptics such as savlon and sudocrem. Once the infection is under control, your scar should begin to heal.

Yeah, it has happened to me a few times. I haven't found that it has made the scars any deeper. But that was probably because they were mild and wouldn't scar at all. I would recommend treating it like any other pimple and not look past it.
