Question: Question about Blue Nevus.....I have one on my neck, have had it for years, now it hurts.? It does hurt from time to time, but this time I picked at it and it started to drain puss, like a pimple. I know, it's gross, it cancerous? I have an appt with a dermatologist next month. Should I worry? Should I have the appointment moved closer? The mole is a blue nevus and has been under my skin for many years.

Answer: Blue Nevi are never cancerous. You probably got it infected by picking on it. Wash with soap and water, apply antibiotic ointment and make sure and see your dermatologist for confirmation that all is ok - and quit picking at this or any other mole.…
