In brief: Yes
Pityriasis does not leave scars.
It usually does not even leave color change. First confirm that the diagnosis is correct, and treat the area with prescription creams to heal the area. If there is a depressed scar it can be improved with fractionated laser treatment either co2 or erbium depending on your skin color.

In brief: Probably
If you are thinking of discoloration = scar this will normally clear wit time.
If you had a loss of tissue deeper than a blister you will take longer to heal.
