I’m terrified help

I have a freckle on my foot and it’s changed in shape in the last 3 weeks and kinda has mixed colours but just different tans like a light tan and a bit darker tan. I did scratch it off and now it’s just a cut and I can’t see it I can’t see a dr for a few months and I’m so on edge should I be this worried

There is no reason to be terrified, particularly if the freckle/mole has just recently changed size/shape.  You don't say what size the mole is, and that's important when considering whether it's potentially melanoma. If you are concerned, it's always best to have a dermatologist look at it.

The "ABCDE" system is very helpful in identifying potential skin cancers: https://www.cancer.org/latest-news/how-to-spot-skin-cancer.html
