CO2 laser mole removal 9 days post treatment
8 months ago
3rd time for a big mole I had and 1st time for a smaller mole under my lip. There are still bits of skin that look like they should peel off the mole (3rd time layered) but if I touch them the skin under is raw red, will they peel off eventually? The mole under my lip scabbed off after a week and left an indent, I became very concerned and began applying polyfax, now it's like a yellow moist circle. Is this going to heal ok?
