Thanks for writing to us.
So you have developed post inflammatory hyperpigmentation due to traumatic injury.
You may try applying a hydroquinone tretinoin based cream to reduce the same. A better bet would be to consult a dermatologist nearby for spot peels with glycolic acid or TCA.
Hope that helped.
Take care
