Pain and itching after mole removal

Cicatryl is a prescription Vitamin E antibiotic used for wound care in other countries. Some people can be allergic to medications like this, and it sounds like you are. I would stop using that (substitute with plain Vaseline) and be seen by your doctor as soon as possible. You shouldn't have these issues, especially the pain, after a simple mole removal.
