I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain there seems to be removal of the top layer of skin and what is left out is the newly forming skin layer that is appearing pinkish and you can apply an antibiotic ointment like Soframycin over it to prevent infection and faster maturation of the skin layer..
You can also do cool compresses over it, avoid scratching or touching it again and again as it can leave a dark spot in that area and maintain a clear and dry skin..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
