Re: Deep Mole Shave Having Issues Healing
I'm rather surprised your doctor elected to do a shave biopsy for this. I'm guessing s/he had reasons for doing this, but typically if there needs to be a good deal of skin taken, a punch biopsy is taken. It does require numbing (a mild local shot), and a stitch or two, but the healing time is minimal and the scarring is usually far less than a shave.
I do believe that skin left covered, as under a bandaid, will not heal as quickly as skin left to the open air. So, your wound might heal up now that it is uncovered. However, 3 weeks is a bit disconcerting, and I don't blame you for questioning this. If this were me, I think I would be calling the doctor's office and asking to be seen to have things checked out. Also, 3 weeks seems like a long time for biopsy results. I think the average is about 2 weeks. I think you might want to check up on this.
