Dear customer,

Thank you for replying.

The recent change and the present appearance is slightly concerning. This is looking mildly atypical and my recommendation is to have a skin biopsy done after examination by a doctor. Only with a normal skin biopsy, you can rest assured that this is harmless. Most of these changes are likely to be benign but require further investigations to accurately diagnose the cause of the change.

Take care.
