Is my freckle normal?

Hi, I’m really worried about a freckle one my face, I have two big ones and lots of normal ones. Last month I had dry skin over one and picked it off and it was like a light brown scab that came off! Now I think it’s happening again, it looks like a pore next to a freckle, but does that even happen to pores? I am totally freaking out, I have worried about these freckles on my face for two years, had them over 7 years.  Now my worst fear is coming true! I feel so sick.

I should say that last year I was putting lemon juice on them twice a day to fade them but irritated the skin and I always touch them and pick them!

We can't offer an answer about your freckles being safe or unsafe.
Your best option would be a dermatologist who can examine your skin, and put your mind at ease.
I would suggest you don't pick at any freckles or moles. You risk scarring, infection by doing so.
