Suggest remedy for brown coloured moles on face

l have 6 moles/beauty marks on my face. 5 of them are the normal brown color while the one next to my nose is a light brown / flesh tone. I recently noticed that there was a white spot, almost pimple like thing, somewhat on it. I squeezed it and only clear fluid came out and now the white spot is gone, but my mole is red and sore to the touch. Is this normal and do you have any idea what it could be? Thanks!

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of brown colored moles on face which seems like you have developed pustule in that area which is something you should be very careful about. I would suggest you to keep the area clean and dry as much as possible. Don't apply any kind of moisturizing creams/lotions over the affected area. If in-spite of the above measures, the lesion persists or continues to increase in size, then you might need a course of oral antibiotics along with pain killers.If condition keeps on persisting visit dermatologist once and go for biopsy of lesion to rule out any malignancy and start treatment after proper examination microscopic and histopathological. Clean the area with lukewarm water twice a day and apply an antibiotic cream like mupirocin gel over the area twice daily. 2% mupirocin ointment, twice daily for a week can be applied topically for faster relief.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
