hello neela
welcome to healthcare magic forum
thank you for your query
you have inflammatory skin lesion .
initially lesion are red than brown dark and finally turn into light or white color .
this is natural color change in healing process
you should apply good moisturizer lotion over the skin and hydrocortisone cream over the spot
it will take 1-2 wk to fade the lesion
if disease is active than you may feel the new lesion also
better to consult doctor if you not feel better
i hope i answered your question
