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.
