What to Know about Birthmarks
Bring any marks on your baby to our attention at your first visit and we can address them.
Many babies will have:
- Nevi (moles),
- Flammeus nevus (“stork bite” on the base of the skull or “angel kiss” on the forehead),
- Mongolian spots (bluish-purple spots on the back and shoulders),
- Hemangiomas (“strawberry spots”),
- Milia (white spots on the nose), etc.
The great majority of birthmarks and other skin marks are normal and not a cause for concern.
