Regrowth of mole. Got itchy sunburn. Should I be concerned?

I had a largish mole (3/4 inch? or so) shaved off about a year ago; it was determined to not be cancerous; it has regrown a bit but the Dr. said that was nothing to worry about. However, recently I got a medium sunburn (no blistering, but some peeling) and it started itching; now it has changed in color (gotten redder where it was pale pink before, and with a whitish and darkish spot) and also changed in texture (was kind of normal mole-like before, now is very squishy, almost like a very large blister). Is this worrisome? Thanks

Dear Ananemone,
Your history suggests that your condition is directly a consequence of the sun burn. At present apply an antibiotic cream and wait for it to subside. Once it has subsided then we can have a look and decide whetehr it needs removal or not.
