Is redness normal one week post mole removal? (Photo)

I had a mole removed a week ago on my ankle. There has been a lot of redness since the removal and I have pain walking. I have been washing it twice a day, putting ona light layer of Neosporin, and covering with a bandaid. Is there anything else I can do to help the healing process?

See a Cosmetic Dermatologist for Wound Care

Since you're experiencing difficulty walking from pain, I recommend following up with your Dr. for an evaluation and wound care. I recommend silicone gel with growth factors. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
