In brief: No
Most red birth marks do not turn to dangerous, complicated or cancerous marks.
A few may change rapidly over a short period of time; these are the abnormal ones.

In brief: Yes
Birthmarks can be red.
However, if the mark changes over time (even years) with respect to size, color, or any other features, you should get it looked at by your family doctor.
