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

Redness is a predictable part of healing and will subside with time. If the redness bothers you, you may consider undergoing a pulsed dye laser treatment to improve the redness.
