Discolored Scar after curettage. What can I do?

3 weeks after a curettage, I vacationed in Mexico. Despite my best efforts to keep the new scar out of the sun, the scar is now discolored (red). What can I do about this? Is it permenant? The scar is also indented which caused me much grief and I don't think the discoloration is helping matters. Many thanks!
