Thanks for posting your query.
A sudden increase in the size of the mole is worrisome and needs medical attention. It needs to be investigated and then removed under the guidance of your dermatologist.
The rash on your neck and face could be due to Erythema multiforme, Dermatitis- due to skin infection, allergy, dry skin- Xerosis or Heat rash.
A direct examination by a dermatologist is the best way to get it diagnosed.
Most simple rashes improve with gentle skin care and avoiding irritating substances. You can help the improvement by applying 1% hydrocortisone ointment over the affected area.
Avoid sun exposure as much as possible. Wear sun screen to reduce the harmful effect of UV rays on the skin which can aggravate the danger of mole turning malignant. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and XXXXXXX leafy vegetables to ensure good supply of vitamins and minerals for skin and antioxidant effect as well. Drink plenty of water.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
