Customer Question

I have an old brown mole on my clavicle. I recently went to the Bahamas and got some sun. Now, my mole is flaking. No other changes have occurred. Is this normal?

This is Dr. David

you most likely had a bit of a sun burn in your neck and clavicle area

that is why the skin there is flaking.

sun can be strong in the Bahamas.

you should use some aloe and lidocaine and moisturizers on your skin to heal your skin.

over time the flaking will get better.

the mole is most likely benign

would you like to upload a clear jpg photo of the area?
