dark spots after using apple cider vinegar


So I have a skin tag (after much research i am almost sure it is not a wart) at the base of my penis. I came across the apple cider vinegar method, and gave it a try. after 2 days the skin tag shrank a lot and darkened ( it didnt fall off yet), which is what is supposed to happen.

I woke up with morning with another issue, dark spots around the skin tag.

I am a little freaked out. Is it a type of skin burn from the vinegar?  Will it go away on its own?

I will go see a dermatologist but I am currently abroad for a few months.
