Ovenight moles?

Hi, I was wondering if it is normal to wake up with several new moles around the body. I looked at them and they aren't raised or red, they look like other moles I have.  2 are on my right hand and 2 on my left arm that weren't there yesterday. Is this normal?

Overnight appearance of several moles all over the body is less likely. Other possibilities like viral infections and benign growths of the skin need to be ruled out. A biopsy skin will be helpful in confirming the diagnosis.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
