How can I fade a mongolian spot?

How can I fade a mongolian spot?

Be patient: Mongolian spots fade by themselves over the years. If they are deep and dark at birth it may take until the teen years (as it did in my son's case, who looked like somebody had poured a bottle of blue ink on his back at birth!).

Will vitamin E oil help get rid of my mongolian spot from my face? If not then is there anything I can put on my face to make it naturally fade away.

Will vitamin E oil help get rid of my mongolian spot from my forehead? Its little about the size of a nickle, its light.

Unlikely to matter: I have never heard of a mongolian spot on a forehead or other site on the front of the body.

Depends on early Rx: Treating flea bites promptly with cool compresses, 1 % hydrocortisone/calmine and perhaps an oral antihistamine (claritin/zyrtec) and tending to the scar after the lesions heal will minimize their appearance.
