Mole on face, scratched, peeled off, pinkish, brown. Used neosporin. Will it be okay?

I have a mole on my face its small lighter brown and soft and higher up off my skin, I scratched it this morning and the top layer peeled right off didn't hurt, bled a tiny bit and now just has a tiny brown outer ring around it with pinkish middle. Should I be concerned? I cleaned it with alcohol didn't burn, and put neosporin on it.

Hi ..thanks for writing here.Since you have scratched the mole it is highly possible that it has become infected.Just apply t bact cream instead of neosporin and also take antiinflamatory drugs like combiflam .Once infection subsides it will be better to consult a dermatologist and go for mole surgery,since a mole is always advisable to remove if it is itching,or increasing in size or its colour is changing .Take care
