Red vs. Brown Moles?

On a summer day in mid June of this year, I went to lay out in the yard and fell asleep. I woke up and noticed that I was a little red. Later on that night and for the next 4-5 days, I was in pain from the burn. Skin peeled from my whole chest and underarms because I fell asleep facing up with my arms behind my head. I know that this is what happens after a sunburn, but what I am concerned about is the presence of a a few pinpoint nonraised brown moles and red moles on parts of my chest and oblique areas. I have had a couple red moles prior to this, but there definitely were some that came from this one incident. How do red moles differ from brown moles and Is there anyway to get rid of these moles? Should I be concerned?
