Thin Brown Patches On Baby’s Skin?
Good afternoon, I want to ask if the birthmark of a baby can disappear … in my child there is a thin brown spot on the forehead
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. A birthmark is a certain appearance of the skin, it can be patches, spots, or maybe that looks like a scratch that appears in infants since birth. There are various beliefs in the community that try to explain the cause of the emergence of birthmarks in infants, but from a medical point of view the actual cause is still unclear.
There are various types of birthmarks, some are called strawberries because they are red and strawberry-like, some are called wine stains, coffee stains, Mongolian spots and so on but the point is, most birthmarks are harmless and don't need any treatment. Some can disappear over time and some settle into adulthood.
In the case of your child, our advice should be awaited. And if after he grows up does not also disappear, or there are signs that the birthmark is a serious condition (enlarges rapidly, affects the eye, mouth or nose, develops under the skin and so on), check with a dermatologist to get further treatment, can be in the form of laser therapy, oral medication or surgery. But for now, the point is not to do anything first. So, hopefully answering your question.
