it is abrasion on your face which should be cleaned thoroughly when you had injuey. at present it might have healed and that black thing which you are observing is a scab which will go once you clean with soap and water. you can apply sofradex ointment twice daily for early healing

protect it from sunlight and use a good sun screen agent

hi there,
I can understand your concerns,Hydroquinine one of the constituent of the cream has hyper pigmentation as a side effect in some patients.
So may be thats one of the cause,but i didnt get from your question that earlier before the application of your cream by Black Scratch you meat a bruise or not?
if its a bruise then you can leave it alone and give it sometime .
Anyways you must consult your dermatologist again and discuss it,and i would advise to stop applying the crean till then.
i hope you ll find the answer helpful,
thanks very much and all the best.
