Mole shaved off in 2013. It's red & blistering now. Is this something to watch or should I have it looked at again? (Photo)

It was a birth mole I inherited from my dad he had the same mole. It is regenerating and shape of it has been returning for years although it has never fully come back.

I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist for a formal evaluation. This can be improved or removed with lasers, radiowave or shave. See an expert to minimize scarring. Best, Dr. Emer.

please go to a dermatologist right away to have it looked at and possibly biopsied.  do not ignore or sit on a red and blistering mole. 

good luck
