No: Such "birthmarks" usually fade on their own. Trying to treat may make matters worse. Wish you and your son good health!

Discoloration: As stated earlier, this could be a a birthmark. If you are unsure about what this discoloration is then consider having his doctor take a look. If this is something that has been changing - get it checked. However, if it is a birthmark, I would work to learn to accept it. Take care.
