Hello,
It is common to have a scar and a bump after a cold sore, the redness and the inflammation after the yellow crusting has shed off should heal in a few days time. If the bump increases in size or the scar remains, then please get it evaluated for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation from a dermatologist.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
