Brief Answer:
Seems to be due to inflammation, apply steroid antibiotic cream

Detailed Answer:
I have reviewed the attached photograph and it seems to be inflammation due to picking of the pimple.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply a topical antibiotic and steroid combination like neosporin ointment and cortisone cream on the affected areas twice daily for 5-7 days,
This will help in resolving it.

Dear Dr Asmeet,

Thank you so much for your help. Just additional question, since it looks like a burning mark and feels like a dry skin area, is there are any chance that will create a scar?
