5 Dangers of Removing Moles From Your Skin


Dangers of Mole Removal
4. Allergic Reaction to Anesthesia
Those who have a sensitivity to pain or blood sometimes opt for the local anesthesia to make the process of removing the mole less painful. While on the surface this might seem like a simple solution to the issue, this does present some serious and dangerous side effects. Once under the anesthesia, you may wake feeling sick and have several bouts of severe vomiting. Feeling faint, dizzy, and extremely cold may persist for days, or lead to severe headaches. Once you get home, you may notice that some of the symptoms are not subsiding, and you discover you begin having difficulty passing urine. The skin surrounding the location of the mole that was removed may begin to bruise, feel sore, and cause incredible itching. Some of these conditions may get worse, and if they are still bothering you in a few days it is important you bring this to the attention of the doctor before more serious issues like nerve damage can result.

5. Getting a Serious Infection
One of the risks associated with getting a mole removed is getting an infection after the procedure has been performed. The key to avoiding an infection says the American Academy of Dermatology, wash and clean the area several times a day. If the area is not clean, a person will notice the location where the mole was turning red and feeling a stinging hot pain as a result. Once you see pus coming from the skin, you need to consult with your doctor immediately. If you do not seek medical help for the infection, it can affect the bloodstream and cause a life-threatening disease known as sepsis.
