Scratched mole, bleeding, hole formed. Cause of concern?

I accidently scratched a mole today when holding my guinea pig, his nail scratched right through it and it s been bleeding since on and off. I have put some cream on it but have just noticed that it actually looks like it s split in two! the scratch is right down the middle so it s like there s two sides with a hole in the middle, I m scared incase one side gets scratched off or falls off and I m scared incase it does me harm! I ve heard that moles can be dangerous, I ve never scratched one before, Will it harm me? What do I do?

Don't bother. It is only infected mole.
There may be itching. Whether itching is there or not don't scratch.
Botheration is only if it starts increase in size
For bleeding & infection consult a dermatologist
