It hurts around the mole area and also when I touch the mole for like past 2 days and now there s like an acne with pus at the edge of the mole. Is it dangerous or I just happen to have acne near the mole? But I never had an acne under my chin before.... please help

Healthcare Magic will do some help for you, keep faith on it.

A mole is a Benign pigmented developmental anomaly of skin. It may remains asymptomatic and harmless for life long

BUT it will be a concern when you notice..(ABCD)

A-Area-Rapid enlargement of area

B- Border- Abnormal, irregular and active border

C- Color- Rapid change of color tone

D- Diameter- Diameter increase rapidly

If any of above findings is present you must go to a dermatologist/ Surgeon.

For acne near chin- You need to wash it for 2/3 times daily with a soap/ face wash then apply a Erythromycine/ Clindamycine lotion twice daily for 2 weeks and let us know the follow up.

With regards.
