Hi, if it is small scar , go for scar revision by plastic surgeon. If it is big one , you apply hyaluronic acid containig gel thrice a day. Take vitamin C and E daily till good result. If hypertrophic scar is there, take intra lesional injection triamcinolone .. Ok you may consult dermatologist or plastic surgeon... Ok

As you have told ,, seems like you just like a black hyperpigmented mark over your forehead....
Since it is a dark scar, i would advice that you use some kind of a lightening agent like kojic acid and vitamin c combination over the scar,,this is a simple, harmless lightening agent which can be used for as long the blackish pigmentation is there.. Also ,try not to touch the area too much ...use proper sunscreen (spf>26) before going out in the sun so that the lesion doesn't darken any further....and take a diet rich in vitamin C and antioxidants like Citrus fruits and lots of salads

Hope it helps
