Hydrocortisone question...

I have a question about over the counter hydrocortisone 1%. I scraped my face a little before Christmas of 2008. So, a little over 3 months ago. It scabbed and healed, but left a pink mark on my cheek, about the size of a quarter, more oval shaped though. I really want this pinkness to go away but don't know how to get it to do so. Would hydrocortisone relieve this pinkness at all?

I took some from my mom, tried it for the exact same purpost (except mine was a red mark from a former zit), and the answer is.... No.

It's actually apparently not a good thing to put on your face at all. Try dabbing a little bit of extra strengh polysporin and a little piece of toilet paper over top of it to hold it in place for a couple nights, this worked for me many a time (even if the mark is slightly old.)
