Pimple on Mole?
« on: June 12, 2014, 08:51:57 PM »
I have this small-ish, semi-flat mole on my cheek above my jaw.  Been there as long as I can remember.  Yesterday, I noticed it was feeling more raised than normal so I looked in the mirror.  I couldn't really see anything different, it looked like it always looks, but it definitely felt more raised.  I THINK I've had this happen before and it was just a pimple and it went away, the mole returned to normal.  But for some ridiculous reason, yesterday I was kinda freaking out about it so I thought, well if it's a pimple maybe it'll pop, then I'll know it's a pimple and I can just move on.  Sound like a bad idea?  You're right.  It was.

Nothing popped out of it but because I was squeezing the skin between my fingernails, it caused the skin to bleed and scab over.  Today, I was worried about how awful the scab looked so I picked it - another bad idea - and now the "mole" is really raised and irritated looking.  If I had only left it alone, it would at least still look normal, it just felt different.  This happens so often - something freaks me out but in trying to discern it or make it go away, I only make it worse and add to my anxiety.  Ugh.

All this to say - is this something I should be freaking out about or should I take a chill pill?  Can you get a pimple on your mole?

I had a pimple on a mole on my upper cheek...popped it (gross, sorry)...end of story.  Nothing to worry about other than cosmetically.  Hang in there!
