Doctor insights on: Raised Birth Mark

Raised Birth Mark (Overview)

Large moles that are present at birth (congenital nevi) are more likely to become skin cancer (malignant melanoma). This is especially true if the mole covers an area larger than the size of a fist. The cancer risk is related to the size, location, shape, and color of the mole.

Maybe: Most capillary hemiangiomas will increase in prominance, growing faster than the kid until age 10-12m. They then usually stop growing and gradually fade over time with some leaving behind a falttened, parchment like skin by the age of 4y.Those that were not evident at birth, have the best chance of fading while those that were prominent at birth may persist to some degree. ...Read more

Does dark spot corrector work on post acne red marks? Thanks!

Does dark spot corrector work on post acne red marks? Thanks!

No: Usually dark spots corrector is used on dark pigments seen on the hands as women age. Because it is formulated for the spots or lentigos on the hands I would not use it on the face. Acne has an antinflammatory component that aging spots do not have. To avoid possible scarring of the facial skin I would not recommend using it on the face. Follow label directions for safest use. ...Read more
