I have a flesh colored symmetrical mple on my upper back sort of at nape of my neck. I was at skin doctor in September for somethign else and showed it to him and he said its nothing, normal mole. A couple days ago it started bleeding I think because i play around with it wihtout thinking and may have scratched it. That is what i told myself the past 2 days. Yesterday a dry scab came off and now its just red in middle of the mole. It is same size always been just red in middle. Since im not 100% sure its from me scratching myself I started to get worried now. Do i need to go to my doctor? Not sure what to do.

Thanks for this question

So did it heal on its own?

No. I didnt heal yet. It is red in center now after the scab came off. The edges are flesh color as its always been. I attached a picture. Did u see it. That is how it looks now

Yes, I saw it

I'm sorry you are having this issue

I would let it heal and see what it looks like

a non healing wound is concerning

but if the dermatologist looked at it I would be confident it is okay

I can't be 100% sure until I see it healed

is this helpful?

HOw long should I give it to heal?...I think its only been 2-3 days. The dermatologist saw it a month ago before it bled and said its a normal mole. Wondering 1) how long I should wait. 2) If it competely heals then no worry? 3) did u see the picture?Also I am 25 weeks pregnant if that makes any difference.thx

1)2 weeks

2)correct

3)yes I saw it

The pregnancy shouldn't matter

Thx for your reply. From what u saw what is your opinion? Its a little hard to see I know. Red is in center where i peeled off scab. Edges is same diameter and color (flesh color) as before. I am a very anxious person so how worried should i be while i wait it out?thx

No I think you likely have nothing to worry about

I think you will be ok

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
