I've picked a freckle

I've picked a freckle.
It's scanned and gone back to normal.
I am worried about it. Will it be ok if I leave it now?

Sorry this sounds so silly!!

Keep your eye on said freckle, if it doesn't heal up and weeps or bleeds after it should have healed then see the doctor and DO NOT pick freckles!!! I know it can be tempting, I'm not telling you off but pick something else other than moles or freckles. Try and chill out, if it's just a freckle you should be ok but do keep your eye on it!

I thought freckles were just hyper pigmented skin. They should behave just as normal skin does.

A mole might be different.

It should be fine.

Find something to do with your hands wink

I agree Hallow I think it was a beauty spot or tiny mole, hence advise to keep eye on it!!!
