Dermatologist 's  Response

There are better and more effective definite procedures available to remove moles for eg electro cautery! Kindly do not follow home remedies blindly.

You have basically developed an irritant reaction due to garlic application.

To treat the same

Apply steroid cream over affected area twice in a day.

Avoid sun exposure

Use mild moisturising cream to keep the area hydrated like cetaphil moisturiser.

Hopefully in few days your face will clear off.

Take care
