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

Surely this post- inflammatory pigmentation will revert in time.
Best wishes.
