Healed masturbation scar leaves a white spot

Hello gentlemen, tried to ask this in Dermatology Community but got no response. I hope anyone can help me out with this one.

About a month ago I had this abrasion on the shaft of my penis, which I believe to have been the result of masturbation. I applied povidone-iodine and Garamycin, and it healed completely after 2 weeks. The thing is, now there is a white scar on the exact same spot where the wound existed, which looks like a discoloration and since my penis is dark it looks quite obvious and annoying. I've been applying Dermatix twice daily for about a week and I frankly haven't seen any significant improvement.

Do I need to worry about this or Dermatix does take a long time to cure scars from healed wounds? How long does Dermatix normally heal scars and is there any better cream? I heard about Hiruscar and Mederma but never tried them.

Does anyone have the same problem? would really appreciate any answer.

Mederma is pretty good.  Unless you're making your living posing for photos of that part of your body, you probably won't have anyone point it out and demand answers.  (If they do, tell them it's a bullet wound from your time in Iraq.  Really, it's nobody's business.)  It can take a few months for a skin scar to heal.  Good luck!
