Birthmarks- all of them are not black!!!

 Can birthmark be of white color? Will it grow bigger? Is it treatable? Won't your child feel bad when he grows up?”
These are the questions I confront with when people see a light colored birth mark on the forehead of my child. The word “Birth mark” usually creates a picture of black colored mole in our mind; however there are hundreds of types of birthmarks with varied presentation. The purpose of this article is not to help you in diagnosing which type of birthmark your kid has, instead to make you aware with the most common birthmarks and what you should do if your kid has one. The psychological impact of birthmark can be devastating as even a single comment or an awkward gaze can hurt the self esteem of the kid.
