Trauma does not lead to the degeneration of the mole. People call a mole any tumor on the skin. If skin cancer is injured, it accelerates its growth a bit, but it was already cancer before the injury. If you have injured a mole – it remains a normal mole after the injury. However, only a doctor can determine whether you have cancer or not.
Wipe with a clear antiseptic for wounds
Antiseptics such as chlorhexidine, 3% hydrogen peroxide, even vodka, clean the wound well and prevent infection. The doctor recommends treating the area twice a day. The wound can also be sealed with a hypoallergenic “breathable” patch, but this is not necessary.
What to do if bleeding continues
If you think the bleeding is heavy enough, you can stop it by pressing the wound with your finger through a clean, dry cloth for 10 minutes.
What happens if you pull your hair out of the mole:
- Injury of a nevus;
- Hair does not grow in the mole itself, but deeper in the skin, so the nevus tissue is slightly injured.
No signs of injury or inflammation
If the hairs are few and they are thin, the person has treated the hands, tweezers and skin with an antiseptic, there will probably be no injuries or inflammation.
What to do with mole hair:
- It is cheap and safe to cut your hair with scissors;
- Remove a mole – safely and forever.
What can be done with hair, but it is undesirable:
- Shave your hair;
- Pluck hair with tweezers on small moles.
What not to do with hair on the mole
Remove hair from the nevus with a laser, apply wax and chemical depilation.
