Burned skin

I had ringworm last year and my doctor advised me to use Candiva cream. It was gone after weeks of using it, but you can see dark spots (like burned marks).
Last week, I noticed that the part gets itchy so I panicked and purchased a Bonil Solution (5g of Salicylic Acid, 5g of Benzoic acid,5g Resorcinol & 1g of Iodine). I applied 3x that day. And next morning, it looked swollen, itchy, red. Now it looked terrible. It is very dark and flaky. What should I do?? =(( Thanks

Hi there!

The hyperpigmented appearance could be due to the infections (fungal) or a primary post-infectious hyperpigmentation of the skin. Before considering OTC skin lightening ointments, it is advised to consult a dermatologist to rule out infections which could possible worsen without adequate treatment.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
