Hello, I'm 17 years old about six months ago i had a mole removal. I was happy because i hated it. It was on my chick, it wasn't that big but still i wanted it remove. So now i still have a red mark, and i don't know if i should go to a doctor or wait. It is a red-pink color and im afraid I'll have a big scar. Thanks
It is common for there to be redness after a procedure like this. The redness should continue to improve.
