I had met a road accident 3-4 weeks back then did the antibiotics course and got the tetanus already. After a few weeks the scab started forming n thn it's removed now but the skin underneath is very dark pink in color and whenever I walk it turns somewhat purple, is my wound really healing. Will it turn out to be a scar. N how much timw it'll take to get perfectly healed. N what I'll have to be doing now to make it of my normal skin color again. Please help me out. N suggest me what to do.

I will suggest you to upload the image of the lesion for diagnosis and further guidance and hypopigmented scar might remain after healing and tips - clean it with normal saline solution and not to apply any ointment and do dry dressing.
Sounds like you have developed an unstable scar, please visit a plastic surgeon for your problem because it could lead to painful or itchy scars or scars that breakdown and bleed.
