Tri-malleolar fracture - plate and screws

I broke my ankle two months ago, had surgery to put in the plate and screws on the outside of my ankle, and am currently under the care of a podiatric surgeon. I've noticed since I got the plaster cast off that the scar is irritated and there's a puncture-looking wound. I can also feel that the plate is more prominent on one part of the ankle. My doctor gave me lidocaine for the scar, but it's still irritated by the Aircast I'm now in and I'm afraid that a lace up ankle brace (my next step) will irritate it more. What do you suggest?
