    Mole Flareup Again

    Hi all,
    im gonna keep this short as Iím having an anxiety Flareup at work. I noticed this strange spot on my forehead a few days ago - I thought it was an acne scar at first, but itís been about a week now and it looks more like a weird freckle. Iím freaking out about it, and want to call the dermatologist, but for now I need reassurance

    Update: called the dermatologist but was redirected to billing, I think for some bill they never sent to me. �� I’ll have to wait even longer until I’ll have enough to get it covered, then I assume I’ll have to wait another week or two to even get in there. So stressed out.....

    Looks like a freckle which are harmless as far as I know.

    Is there a chance of freckles being bad? Iíve read they can turn bad, and have heard others say they canít...

    Yeah that's a terrible feeling when you think you've stumbled on to something like that. I agree that it looks like a harmless freckle. None of the raised up or ridged or jagged areas that suggest something nefarious. The dermatologist will put you at ease, though.

    Hereís another picture of it with flash, you can see it a bit better. Itís definitely not the weirdest mole/freckle I have, but Iím still a little weirded out by it. It popped up about a month and a half ago?

    Thank you for the extra reassurance!! Iím still a bit stuck about payments for the dermatologist, but Iím hoping Iíll be able to get in at least in a month to see. Just scares me to think that, on the chance itís bad, money would be holding me up.

    It is a sun spot. It is harmless. You will get more as you get older (we all do). I'm in the same boat so I dont judge you, but you need to learn to manage these obsessions without running to a derm. Only so often you can run there before it starts looking really weird....
