Thank you for the question.
Scars and inflammation in the skin in some people can indeed be blackened and curled (pockmarked). Scars like this generally require a longer healing time, because the damage to the tissue involved is quite deep.
The ointment you mentioned contains the active ingredient hydroquinone. This substance can help fade scars and inflammation on the skin, including those that are black and tingling as you mentioned. It's just that, it should be understood, that the use of this ointment independently is not recommended, unless it is prescribed directly by a doctor. Because, many dangerous side effects are found that can arise due to its use, including dry skin, redness, feeling hot, swollen, sore, peeling, blisters, and even your skin will look more blackened or blue.
Frequently, treatment of scars and blackened scars and inflammation is not enough to be done simply by giving topical therapy (such as ointments, creams) alone, but must also be balanced with other therapeutic modalities, such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, fillers, lasers, photodynamics, and etc. Therefore, so that your condition is handled properly without serious side effects, you should first check with your doctor or dermatologist first ..
I hope this helps.
