Any idea of treatment for discolored skin after cryotherapy?

I am a 25 year old male that had hpv genital warts.  Cryotherapy treatmet was used to freeze them off and was successful, but left the surrounding skin discolored.  I have tried to used hydroquine cream and elicina cream with little improvement.  Any body have any ideas or solutions to this problem?

Oddly enough I have seen this many times when I worked in a clinic. Depending on your skin tone, those creams may not help. Try a vitamin A&E ointment. Those dark areas are just scars. They may never go away.
