How are birthmarks treated in children?
Q: My daughter has a chocolate colour birthmark on her left cheek in contrast to her very fair skin which is oval shaped and 1 x 0.5cm. She is usually seen rubing her mark in mirror, trying to remove it (when nobody is around). At age of 4 she is conscious and remains furious. What shall I do?
A:Please consult a dermatologist to find out exactly, what it is. Then, if found to be a birthmark, plastic surgery is the option. Nowadays lasers are also being used but they are effective only in a particular type of birth marks.
