Skin Moles
Hi Doc,

Earlier this week i suntanned outside. I got a bit burnt a bit on my stomach as im very fair skinned and I have 3 moles there that all grew scars? Is it from the sun? Or could it maybe be from swimming in the sea? Or from the aftersun gel? What is this an indication of?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Thank you for visiting

This is caused by excessive sun exposure. I suggest that you consult a Dermatologist to have the moles removed if this is of great concern to you.

Kind regards
