You must have noticed small pimples and blotches on newborns’ skin that soon disappear as they adapt to the environment outside the mother womb. But there are some marks or splotches that do not disappear appear over time. Such blotches are referred to as birthmarks. As the name suggests most of the birthmarks are present on the infant’s skin at the time of birth, but they may appear shortly after the birth.
Dermatologists divide birthmarks into two broad categories, pigmented birthmarks and vascular birthmarks. The former are caused by excess of skin pigment (melanin) in the cells, whereas the latter are caused by enlarged blood vessels or clusters of blood vessels in a certain area. Pigmented birthmarks are flat whereas vascular birthmarks are usually raised above the surface of skin. Birthmarks come in different sizes, shapes and colors, including pale yellow, pink, red, purple, blue, brown, tan and black.
Birthmarks are mostly benign and rarely cause any discomfort or problem, but one thing is confirm and that is they are not aesthetically pleasing. According to a survey, 90% of the individuals get birthmarks treated for cosmetic reasons.
