I have a 10 year old daughter who has reddish (auburn) hair and LOTS of freckles (she gets it from me). She has 2 areas that I am concerned with, 1 is on her arm-it looks like a light freckle with a very dark brown center but is raised a bit (it's been like this without changes for a few yr's). The other is on the side of her neck and again looks like a freckle that is raised but over the last few months she says it's started itching and over the last few weeks has a red ring around it. I made an appt with a dermatologist but they can't see her for 3 weeks. How concerned should I be? My mom has had basal/squamous cell in the past but these don't look like anything she's had.
