Mole on face, white head present on it. Due to ingrown hair?

i have a mole on my face that has been there since i can remember. to me it is a typical common mole. but yesterday it started to hurt and when i woke up this morning i noticed that it has a whitehead on it. could this be something to worry about or perhaps just an ingrown hair . should i pop the white head or leave it be?

Hello and welcome
It seems the there is pus in it that has cause due to infection. Do not pop it till you consult your doctor. I think a course of short antibiotic will resolve it and you will get rid from it. If it rupture by it own than you can squeeze it and remove all the pus present in it. But even than you need antibiotic to heel the left wound without any infection. Take analgesic drugs to reduce pain.

sudden pain in a mole can be problematic. this is a thing to worry, u must consult a dermatologist nearby. usually sudden pain occurs when the mole becomes a tumor. so please get a biopsy done.
