A 42-year-old female asked:

Accidently picked at a brown mole now it is red mole and hurts and red skin round mole, not itchy or no pus can't get to see a doctor for 6 weeks

Why 6 weeks?: Was it a seborrheic keratosis? By the time you see a Dr in 6 weeks it will no longer be red or tender. When you go, let's hope the Dr can identify it precisely. If not, a biopsy will settle it. Not urgent.
