Bleeding after getting a mole shaved and cauterized?

I went to the dermatologist yesterday and had to get a mole removed on my mid back. There wasn't stitches involved. And I am in a lot of pain now. Today I changed my bandaid and it was bloody and the pain started getting worse. Ive had moles removed before and there wasn't blood like this. Is this normal?

I suggest speaking to your physician if you are concerned.  silicone based scar gels with growth factors help best at this time.  Dr. Emer.
