give weak glycolic acid cleansers a try if your skin can withstand it.
I disagree do not even try any weak acid. You most probably WILL regret it and even if it does help will it really be that significant. This is an uneasy time, just ignore it, you cant really do much. THis is the time when your best friends and family come in use the most! Don't worry in the end its better than a scar which is generally permanent without any invasive procedures (most scar patients will trade position with you in a click).
You and I need to know that PIH WILL fade over time (its an immune response to trauma, your body isnt designed to keep pumping the same amount of melanin in that region for ever) but the period is atleast between 3-12 months in most situations. It may well fade before but dont think that, always train yourself for the worst.
