Hi!,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

This condition is called nasal pigmentation .It is very resistant to treatment ,but you can use certain bleaching creams like hydroquinone cream ,or even tretinoin cream locally over the lesion.
The most important thing to use would be a sunscreen daily at least thrice.

regards,
