I have red bumps on my hands an feet . When popped a clear liquid comes out. They hurt when they are touched but don t itch .

Hi I recently was in an accident where I wasn t wearing my seat belt. My forehead hit the steering wheel on impact, now I have a pink circle smack dab in the middle of my forehead. As an African-American man (even though I m light skinned), should I be worried that my original color will never fully return to that spot ? It has been a little over a week and I have been applying aloe vera gel every day since it happened. How should I be treating this, and how long should I expect it to fully heal ?
