Thank you for the information. You have nothing to worry about. What you have described is an irritated mole and this will subside gradually. There is no need to have it removed. Apply 1% Cortizone cream over the mole twice a day for 7 days and take Tab Claritin 10 mg once a day for 7 days. That should take care of it.
