Purple spot under the skin after burn scab fell off. What could this be? treatment?

Hi about 3 months ago I spilled very hot wax on my leg. For the first two months it healed fine but right after the scab fell off it left a purple stop where the burn is but it doesn t seem like discolored skin it s almost like a thin layer of skin with blood under it and it hasn t been getting any smaller or showing any change what can I do to make the spot go away

Thanks for writing here.

It seems you are having post inflamatory hyperpigmenation.

Avoid sun exposure.

Do not try to pull layer of skin.

You need to apply a mild topical steroid like hydrocortisone along with placentrex gel.

Hope this will help you.Take care.
