Hello all, lo is now 16 weeks and doing great! Hoping im posting this in correct place lo had, what we told a birth mark on his lower part of his leg. Lately it seems to raise and darker in colour and then fade a little bit.Has anyone else come across this and should we being going to the GP about this?
Hi, don't panic, there are two types of birthmark. Strawberry birthmarks are raised reddened areas whilst raspberry birthmarks are more 'bruise like' in appearance on the skin. Both can lighten/darken with circulation/temperature of the body. They can appear anywhere upon the body but owing to be associated with assisted deliveries they usually appear upon the legs or face/head. Hope this helps
Many thanks for your replies! Its always good to get other people opinions who are/have been in same situation rather than just resting on 1 persons observations.
Probably will get it double checked when next at doctors, but has put me at ease a bit haha.
