I believe your Oscar is suffering from a condition known as LYMPHOCYSTIS.
This is a fairly common occurrence in freshwater fish. It's not a very harmful condition and is rarely fatal. Unfortunately however, it also isn't really a treatable condition. And, though unsightly and disfiguring, the wart-like cysts that accompany this, will usually subside over time and almost completely disappear.
More info here,
I believe this problem is probably stress-related. More water changes and feeding with a varied diet of high quality, pelleted (and raw) food sources, should see your Oscar cleaned up successfully. :)
