I have a mole on my cheek that became sore I picked at it. Eventually white stuff cane out of it and now it is a itty bitty scab should I be worried?

In brief: Check if not healed

Don"t pick! use Bacitracin ointment until it heals.
If it does not heal completely or returns you should see a doctor to have it evaluated.

In brief: Scabbing cheek area

You should keep the area clean and moisturized with a topical antimicrobial ointment like Bacitracin assuming you have no allergies.
Once it heals over you should consult with a facial plastic surgeon to see if or not the area needs further attention.
