Mole on chest, itching, black spots, bumps, hard lump on collarbone. What is wrong?

I have a mole that showed up last year on my chest . In the last month it has gotten bigger and started itching. Part of it is black and in the last two weeks tiny black spots and bumps have showed up around it (close by, like .5-1 inch away). Also, I have a hard lump by my collarbone that I noticed about 1 month ago. It doesn t hurt or anything. Do you think I have an infection in my mole?

Thanks for the query,
You might be suffering from a condition called as Lichen planus.

Treatment is by steroids.

It is an autoimmune disorder and keeps recurring.

A biopsy might be required for diagnosis.

Please meet a dermatologist for final diagnosis and treatment
