Post Hydroquinone usage safe?

I'm curious as to whether it is safe to use my Alpha Hydrox 2% hydroquinone bleaching cream on a red mark I have. My understanding is that this chemical is primarily used for brownish spots on the surface of the skin?

Well the particular scar I'm looking to lighten is a *slightly* raised red mark from a pretty bad nodule I had (kinda has a rough texture/look, definite scar tissue). I'm wondering if it is safe to use hydroquinone on such a mark?
