Red coloured skin after scab

Recommended Posts

At the start of march I applied a certain mole cream to try get rid of it and it got onto the skin which formed a scab. It's been over 2 months since the scab came off and during this period I have known that the skin starts peeling and becomes flaky in that area and then goes back to pink like a mark. Now I have noticed the skin has gone red and I want to know what Is going on with it. Is it a type of scar or will the colour just need time to fade? I really don't know :/
