What causes a mole to itch?

3 doctors weighed in across 2 answers

Different things: An itchy mole deserves a certain amount of vigilance. Sometimes the itch may not be the mole but the surrounding skin or a clogged pore within the mole. One must make certain that if it is indeed the mole that is itching that along with the itch there are not additional changes in the mole such as color, size shape or elevation. When in doubt consult a dermatologist.
