Yesterday I went to my dermatologist to have my annual skin check-up. She examined my moles and said everything is COMPLETELY OK. The only thing i should do is keep an eye on that mole on my left wrist -a 3mm diameter round and kinda raised mole (skin coloured with a brown center less than 1mm diameter from which a hair comes out) I ve had it all my life...Sometimes it would itch but it would stop after a few seconds (after all i wear bracelets and stuff) so nothing worrying she said.. Just keep an eye on that mole for any changes on growth because of its colour variety. i think its compeletely fine but just in case ...By the time she said that I couldn t stop thinking about it...I am a hypochondriac..In the evening while I was getting ready to go out I put some perfume..I thought i felt a little sting-like pain on the mole, I thought it was from the ethanol in the perfume so I freaked out and i started rubbing it with ethyl alcohol every 5 minutes to get sure i felt that pain..So I irritated the skin around it but still couldn t figure out if the mole hurt in contact with the ethyl alcohol..I tried to calm myself but continued teasing it and I desided to pull the mole hair...and i accidentally plucked it..with no effort or pain...just like that...and now it gives me some stings occasionaly...Does the fact that i didn t need effort to pluck the hair or the fact that my mole reacted to ethyl alcohol mean something bad such as melanoma?? Or is it just my Hypohondria along with the fact that the doctor said me to keep an eye on the spesific mole (which i was NEVER suspicious of before) that makes me worry so much??
