Thank you for the question.
This is a difficult question to answer over the net as ideally one would like to examine the skin and the dark patch. From your description it seems you have developed post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This is pigment that has been deposited in the skin due to the inflammatory reaction. Typically this type of pigmentation is difficult to treat however it may lighten on its own with time (6 to 12 months).
I would recommend the following:
Avoid sun tanning the area and if exposed to the sun you must wear a good SPF 30 or higher that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide.
Using depigmenting topical ingredients such as vitamin C and retinol (or vitamin A). Here are some links to products that contain these ingredients:
Vitamin A or retinol: https://skinmiles.com/?s=retinol&post_type=product
Supplements that help reduce pigmentation such as the LAMELLE Ovelle D3: https://skinmiles.com/product/lamelle-ovelle-d3/.
The above skin regime will only start to have some effect after 8 to 12 weeks.
I hope the above has helped.
