Often Pick Up The Mole Between The Fingers Until It Bleeds?
Hello, I want to ask, I have a mole between my fingers, and my habit of cracking it but there is no pain or bleeding, so recently I squeezed it until it peeled off but it didn’t hurt or bleed whether it wasn’t pp,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Moles (nevus) arise as a result of deposition of skin dye-producing cells, namely melanocytes. This condition causes spots that are brown, black, or red in color and often protrude above the surface of the skin. In most cases, moles are not a dangerous condition, although they can sometimes cause appearance problems in some people. In addition, in rare conditions, a small proportion of moles can also potentially develop into cancer (malignant tumor), namely melanoma.
You should not do the habit of pricking, squeezing, or peeling off the mole forcibly. Although it does not cause pain or bleeding, this habit is very risky to cause your skin to experience irritation and infection. This condition can be characterized by skin that feels itchy, sore, reddish, swollen, to experience watery rash, pus, and so on. If it's like this, then of course you need direct treatment by a doctor so that it doesn't spread.
Therefore, as early as possible, stop the bad habits that you often do. Divert your mind to manipulating moles by busy yourself in various positive activities. Always keep yourself clean, including by regularly showering, washing your hands regularly, and also shortening your nails regularly. Don't forget, watch for signs of irritation or infection on your mole marks. Also look for signs of malignancy in the mole on your body, namely asymmetrical shape, indistinct borders, varying color, very large diameter, and also progressively expanding. If there is, do not hesitate to see a doctor directly so that you get the best treatment, ok?
I hope this helps.
