Suggest treatment for a small mole on the face

Hi, I ve had the same mole on the left side of my face ever since I can remember. Although, it has changed colour and grown bigger. It is quite sore, as well as the skin around it. I was looking at it earlier and I accidentally squeezed it and puss came out, it was like a pimple but it was directly in the centre of the mole.

The first thing to do is to treat the secondary infection by application of topical antibacterial cream like mupirocin. Once seconary infection subsides the melanocytic nevus may be removed by a dermatologist or plastic Surgeon. Regards
