Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Bluish on the baby's skin is usually a natural thing as part of the birthmark (Mongolian spots, Mongolian spots). In some babies, these birthmarks can also appear blackish, tanned, or greenish. This birthmark occurs due to the gathering of melanocyte cells in charge of producing melanin pigment in one specific area of the body. Frequently, this birthmark appears in the buttocks area. Although it can also, this birthmark appears in other areas of the body, including the arms. If there are no other complications, these birthmarks will naturally vague and disappear by themselves as the baby ages (usually disappear completely before the child is 5 years old).
Bluish spots on the baby's arms can also be caused by other factors, such as nevi (moles), bleeding disorders (for example due to hemophilia, dengue fever, leukemia), side effects of drugs, post-injury, malignancy (eg melanoma), and so on.
You can check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician if the blue spots look quite alarming. Further examination, for example a biopsy, can also be done if a doctor suspects a serious condition. For now, you should focus first on maintaining the cleanliness of your baby's skin, including routine bathing and wearing clean clothes. Avoid giving any treatment to the spots that appear without the advice of a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
