Hi sweeti,
Thanks for writing in.

You seem to have postinflammatory hyperpigmentation and scar formation.
For pigmentation as a general rule-
Avoid sun exposure
Use a good sunscreen of SPF 30 and repeat application every 3 to 4 hours
Take antioxidant and vitamin c supplements .

You can apply Vaniza cream at night time over the affected area.

You need to consult a dermatologist as dermatology being a visual field, the cause for scar and the treatment required can only be suggested after proper skin examination.

Take care.
