Child having red spot on the upper back, not raised or textured, had treatment for fungal infection. Mole?

Hello, My 8 year old olive complected daughter has developed a red spot a little smaller than a penny on her upper back. Doctor treated her for a fungal and bacteria infection- spot slightly bigger- does not feel raised or textured. she can not feel it or tell that it is there. Could it be a mole and should i be concerned?

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

The description of lesion as you give makes me suspicious of it being a fungal infection.DO continue the same antifungal cream.

If there is any pus formation then a bacterial cause has to be considered.The chances of the lesion being mole are remote.

Wish you good health.
