There should not be a permanent scar from this. It is very small. Just do not try to pop it or something. Let it heal naturally. Apply benzoyl peroxide ointment on it. There may be a small area of hyperpigmentation but it will fade away in a couple of months dont worry.

How long will it take for this to fade? And what type of pimple or acne is this
Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 15 days ago.

It can take upto two months to fade. It is a papular acne.
