Hi Priyanka,
Thanks for writing to us.
If the lesion has still not healed, use a steroid antibiotic crream for few days. Once it heals completely apply a hydroquinone, tretinoin, steroid based combination cream in night and a kojic acid vitamin c based cream in morning. With in couple of weeks, your lesions would resolve completely.
Hope that helped.
Take care
