Welcome to e health forum.

Hyperpigmentation or formation of moles occurs due to overactivity of melanocytes, and it depends on the sensitivity of the skin of the affected patients.

Any form of chronic skin inflammation will end up with such minor skin changes including hyperpigmentation.

This Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation may last weeks to months and this actually helps to protect the skin from further damage due to exposure to UV rays.

The over the counter hydroquinone cream may be effective in your case.

It would be recommended to consult your dermatologist who can provide proper creams and medications to help manage your skin pigmentation.
