Hi, you may be having post burn,postinflammatory hypo and hypermelanosis with scarring. Take vitamin E 400 mg daily, vtamin C 500 mg twice a day for long time.Apply silicone containing gel like hexilak silicone gel twice a day. Protect the area from sunrays... Avoid soap. You can use alovera containing face wash.. I hope you will be benefitted..ok
