Hi,

I don't see pictures attached here. Please upload again.

Some times after an injury, the area injured during healing becomes darker. This is known as post inflammation hyperpigmentation. It slowly fades away and gets better gradually over a period of time. If needed a steroid applicant along with kojic acid cream and sunscreen / moisturizer will aid in faster recovery.

Awaiting your response...
