Mole removal: Does this look infected? What are your recommendations for post surgical care? (photos)

I recently had an in office mole(s) removal. Does this look infected? Can the wounds be covered? What do you reccomend for post procedure care? My post procedure instructions were to leave alone for 24 hours then shower and wash with soap/water. Since they're very visible I wanted the least amount of scarring as possible. THanks for the advice!!!

When in Doubt-Call Your Doctor About After Care

I recommend following up with your Dr. about after care in order to minimize scarring. I recommend using silicone gels with growth factors. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
