Simple mole

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
It's looking like normal mole with slight inflammation.
There is nothing to worry.
It's totally normal.
I treat such cases with a mild topical steroid cream like cortisone twice daily for a week.
It is safe and effective and usually available over the counter.
You can try this.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
