Hi,

Garlic caused chemical irritation there. Now the lesion is just healing. Let healing be complete, and colour might improve slowly. If colour does not get normalised to an acceptable level (some discolouration can be there for months or even years depending on the extend of burn), kindly show to a dermatologist for further management.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
