Question Red rash and two new flat moles suddenly appearing

About 2 weeks ago I noticed a flat red mark on my forehead right by my hairline, just like a sunburn or a rash except it does not burn or itch at all. About a day later, a light-brown, flat mole appeared about an inch away from it. The mole is about 1/2 to 3/4 the diameter of a pencil eraser. About a day after that, I noticed another same color mole about an inch away from the first mole, but this on is much smaller (about <1mm in diameter).

None of the moles nor the red mark itch, crack, ooze, or bleed, and they are not raised. They are mostly symmetrical, are not irregularly shaped, and are not multicolored. They do not seem to be growing but I haven't measured the large mole so I can't say for sure.

I have not been able to find anything that could explain what the red "rash" is and if there is any connection to the new moles. The red mark has gotten lighter but it is still very much there. Does anyone have any thoughts on what this is?

Re: Red rash and two new flat moles suddenly appearing

Sorry, don't know what it might be, but I would get the Moles checked by a Dermatologist to be on the safe side. I have had four removed, almost didn't bother except one grew rapidly. I had surgery on one and Liquid Nitrogen on the other three. Biopsy showed they were Non-Malignant. Might be a different story if I'd left them. The red rash may have no connection. Not a lot of sun in Ireland!... just goes to show!...Solofelix.
