The Skin Around My Eyes Is Getting A Little Reddish And A Bit Flaky
I have a pimple under a mole on my face and super thin layer of my skin around and on the mole is peeling little by little is that normal?
You can always ask: your PCP or skin doctor about this since it requires a physical exam of the moles you're talking about. Also dermatologists do mole mapping to help keep track of this. Most moles don't peel. So, that's unusual, and it may be another type of skin lesion that looks like a mole, but isn't. So start with your doctor first, and let that pimple's inflammation heal a little more. ...Read more

Any other signs/symptoms (weight loss, etc.)? It could be benign (psoriasis, seborrhea) or it could be ominous. ...Read more

If there is something causing the spot (such as sports equipment), the cause can be removed. Sometimes, dry sensitive eczema patches look like reddish, slightly flaky areas. Also, tinea "ringworm" is a fungal skin infection that can look this way (the doctor can decide) and need an antifungal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
