I would highly recommend that you see your physician for follow-up of the treated area and to make sure there is no sign of infection.

Pain after mole removal

Even after a small surgical procedure such as mole removal, infection may develop. Talk to your doctor about performing a culture of the affected area, prescribing topical antibiotics, or even a course of oral antibiotics. You may also have been allergic to something in the local anesthetic or a dressing used to cover the wound. Again, talking to your doctor would help in identifying the problem.
