Mole removal, Infected? (photos)
Doctor Answers 3
Is this mole infected
From the photo, it probably is not infected. A large number of moles look like this as they heal. I would, however, rather than ask here, suggest you go back to the doctor who took it off and ask him or her.
Knowing what's Normal with Mole Removal
This is just the wound healing. I suggest you use a topical growth factor and silicone based gel. If it changes or you begin to experience pain, contact your Dr. Best, Dr. Emer
Thank you for your question. The appearance of your biopsy site is normal. Signs of infection would include pain, swelling, and tenderness. If you develop these signs of infection I recommend for you to contact the doctor who completed your biopsy and inform them of your symptoms. If you do not have these symptoms I recommend to apply a thin layer of vaseline twice daily until the area has healed.
