If you have scaly patches on the skin or lips, or horns, that can't heal for months, you need to see a dermatologist.

If you have mole, you can do a pre-exam on your own. If these occur to your mole, you need to see a dermatologist.

  • The color changes
  • The mole gets unevenly smaller or bigger (unlike normal moles in children, which get evenly bigger)
  • The mole changes in shape, texture, or height
  • The skin on the surface becomes dry or scaly
  • The mole becomes hard or feels lumpy
  • It starts to itch
  • It bleeds or oozes
