i have a mole that looks like it is peeling off?

Have it examined: If the site is a pigmented mole that is changing, it is strongly recommended that you seek attention from local dermatologist or surgeon. Changes such as this are often signals of activation of moles, and if intercepted early and removed can determine if the site is dangerous to you.

It's not a bad idea : You should have even an old mole examined by a dermatologist, especially when it's going through changes. Good luck from nyc.

See your doctor: You may need the mole removed and biopsy if the doctor thinks it looks suspicious. See your doctor for a recommendation.

Yes: It was likely irritated and is responding to a normal healing mechanism.
