Angel kisses: Most of the red on eyelids are called angel kisses.They can also appear between the brows and in the mid face or near the nasal openings. These are dilated capillaries in thin skin and tend to fade as the skin thickens. Discrete red marks away from the eye may be a small hemangioma and will grow, peaking around 10 months before fading some. Your doc can help decide which your kid has. ...Read more

Those that were not visible at birth or are small, often enlarge and then fade completely.They may leave a parchment like skin where they once were located. ...Read more

Difficult question: True hemangiomas tend to increase in size and thickness faster than a kid grows up until age ~12 mo, when they plateau in relative size and gradually begin to fade over 2-4 years.Oral propranalol with close monitoring has been used to try shrinking these with varied results.The Timoptic (timolol) is a similar medicine but designed to treat eye pressure issues in adults. It is not approved in the us for kids. ...Read more

Most birthmarks are: stable, and your retinologist or eye doctor/surgeon can tell for sure. If it's flat and has remained unchanged, then it's less likely to be causing any floaters. If you have a retinal detachment, you could see massive amounts of floaters. But the usual one or two floaters are usually not related to these birthmarks. It's from the vitreous humor aging & changing, and causing shadows on the retina. ...Read more

Nevus of Ota?: Pigmentation that is in one eye, as well as darker pigmentation around the eye, is a condition more common in asians, called nevus of ota. Infrequently, this type of birthmark is associated with melanoma, a type of cancer, so see a pediatric ophthalmologist to evaluate the ocular and orbital anatomy. As a girl, she likely will be able to use make-up to cover any regions of darker pigmentation. ...Read more
