Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi Sagar,
Due to burn injuries your skin lost its pigmentation, this is known as post burn leukoderma. To treat the same, using a steroid and tacrolimus cream would offer some benefit. I would advise you to visit a dermatologist so that the concerned area can be analysed and appropriate treatment be started. Hope that answers your query. Take care.
