Brief Answer:
Pigmented scar ,take treatment

Detailed Answer:
I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same.
You seem to have developed a pigmented scar over the face .
Apply a topical skin lightening agent like kojic acid cream over the affected area twice daily .
Use a medicated sunscreen with spf more than 26 regularly before going out in the sun .Apply it atleast thirty minutes before going out and re apply every three hourly.
This will prevent any further darkening of the lesion .
