Dear Hello, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
Usually 4 WEEKS is the time for cutaneous tinea (fungal) infections for a cure. So your infection has probably not properly healed. IInd skin diseases usually heal with hypopigmentation (light color) or hyperpigmentation (dark color); the color blends with normal skin in few months or so. Therefore, I advice you to please consult a dermatologist for evaluation as dark color is still present. I dont advice self-medication.
Good luck.

Hello there,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Hope you are sure about the fact that the fungal infection is completely healed.Because generally infections of fungal origin take longer time to get healed , unless one has taken months(min 3mnths) of treatment. So in case it is still there, you better restart with antifungals like Terbinafine, Clotrimazole or Miconazole ointments, offcourse after proper consultation with Dermatologist.If you sure it is just a scar, I would suggest, take good amounts of Vitamin A and C supplements, and keep applying Aloe Vera over the area.It takes long, but effects are good.Take care.
