welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
Chandan,these marks would take long time to go.Firstly the crust over the lesions would fall off then gradually color would come down.
Right now you can use just a moisturizing cream.Once the lesions have left black marks then start using hydroquinone cream at night.Also use a sunscreen in day time.
