It's been about 4 weeks now since I had a mole removed from the stomach area. It is still a little sore, not healing. The doctor told me to only use plain Vaseline on the area. I will be calling the doctor this week. I don't like the look around the area. I am using Neosporin now, and it is helping some.

I had several skin tags removed a few days ago. I had never had them done with the razor at the doctor's office. I am in extreme pain and it has been 2 full days. The burn is what hurts extremely bad. I was not informed of aftercare. I'm just today putting some Neosporin on. I'm hoping for relief and some quick healing. This is nothing like I expected. I wish I could post a picture. I would not recommend that razor to anyone. I've had this done before but never experienced this. Be careful to ask questions about the technique and aftercare.

I encountered infection after the removal of my mole. Here's is what the doctor remarked: this is normal infection! Three weeks later it appears the infection is not getting any better, maybe a little worse. I am giving him a call again. If I get no results I will go to family doctor.

I had some moles removed on my face about a week ago. I have red raised bumps and they hurt. I have been washing my face with an antibacterial soap and putting Neosporin on the bumps that are red and raised up because my face hurts in those areas.

I have a mole on my forehead which is deeply located under the skin, two moles on the left side of the nose, one is on the nose near my eye and one is on the side of the nose. I am trying to find how it is removed without any scars.

My mole was accidentally removed.
