Hi,Thanks for query,
As you said this spots are due to itching then nothing to worry,
They will subside gradually.
Apply zinc calamine lotion or Cetaphyl or good moisturizing cream.
Ok and bye.

Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
Dark spots on the legs are mostly due to hyperpigmentation. For removing the scars in one month, dermabrasion is the best treatment which you can discuss with your dermatologist. There are many other remedies like bleaching agents but how far they are effective is doubtful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
