Thanks for writing to us.
From the description, it seems to be post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
In such cases application of hydroquinone 4 percent cream like melalite forte once daily in night along with use of sunscreen with SPF 30 like shadowz in morning should help. For better results one may consider taking few sessions of spot trichloro acetic acid peels as it gives wonderful results.

I would be in better position to help if you could send me an image of the concerned area.

Hope that helps. Should there be more query, feel free to write back.
