White scar from cryotherapy genital wart removal

I had a genital wart removed via cryotherapy freezing method by a dermatologist about 3 months ago. He told me there should be no scarring, however i have a scar in the form of a white ring outline where the wart used to be. So my question, obviously this is in a sensitive area and makes me very self conscious...simply put, how do i fix this scar and get my pigment returned to normal?

I know of no topical cream that will eliminate the depigmentation.  Probably an excision of he depigmented area would be the only option to remove it.  I suggest you consult with your gynecologist.
