what to do if the wound from mole removal is not healing?

Care: If the wound is open, keep the area clean by washing with soap and water at least once a day. You can keep some Bacitracin ointment on the open part of the wound and cover with a dry gauze; change twice a day. Let your doctor know, it may not be healing for other reasons such as infection.
