Question scabby dry mole...

Hi this is my first time posting here and I have searched and searched and havent found anyone with my same problem...well when i was pregnant three years ago a new mole popped up on my jawline the thing that worries me about it is it gets realy dry and a black/dark scab will form on it,,im not sure if its cause i pick it sometimes or what but it contiusouly does this over and over the surrounding skin around it is usually never dry...i saw a derm last year and she looked at it and that was about it saying it was "normal" anyone elso have a dry/scabby mole??????? extremely worried here!

Re: scabby dry mole...

Well, the dry scabby mole wasn't a mole at all & I wish I could remember the name of it??? Sorry, maybe GA Lady knows...he said it is a wart like growth (but not a wart either)....it can easily be removed by freezing.

I had 3 other moles removed today (1st time)...I was scared to death, but it was really simple...now I just have to wait forever for the biopsy report (as he is out of town for a week)...something else for me to worry about.

I don't know that it is what you have? Mine was a little blue/grey looking...perfect circle & dry & scabby looking.

Your best bet is to just get it checked out....good luck!

Re: scabby dry mole...

Yes, it was a form of "keratosis"...originally, I wasn't going to get in to see my derm til the end of April , but I explained my feeling of distress over things & they accommodated me. Ask to be on a cancellation list, let them know how important it is to you to get in at the earliest appt. Good Luck!
p.s. I can't imagine that lotion would irriatate it?? And by the way, don't worry so much, it really is probably nothing.
