Brief Answer:
Regarding moles

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.
Apology for delayed response.
One of the moles with a darker center and XXXXXXX periphery looks pretty beingn as it is symmetrical, regular and round to oval, small sized nevus. However I am not really sure about the other mole with a red dot beside it. It seems to have irregular margins yet is well defined and uniformly colored. So I would consider even this one as normal. However I request you to kindly upload a few more good quality images of it so that I am able to have a good look at it.

Brief Answer:
A benign nevus

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.

It is a triangular in shape. Looks pretty benign since it is uniform XXXXXXX colored, well defined and flat - Junctional nevus. I don't think you need to do anything for it. Just keep a watch on it just like your other moles and if it changes in anyway - size, shape, color, symmetry.

Brief Answer:
A nevus

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.

It is a nevus- a compound nevus. It looks benign. A nevus is firm when felt between fingers whereas a skin tag feels soft and usually also has a stalk.
