Red mark: Is it flat or raised, does it fade with pressure? It could be a hemangioma flat or strawberry, they are benign vacular skin conditions, flat hemangiona fade away with time, strawberry hemangioma tend to get bigger then they start to shrink. It is best if you show it to your pediatrician during the next well visit. It can also be an insect bite, or pressure mark from a button or a snap. Good luck
