Baby birth marks

10/28/2008

Question:

my 4 month old daughter has a big red birth mark that looks weird and sticks out.I wanted to ask do you think it will get smaller?

Answer:

It is possible that you are describing a hemangioma, which depending on where it is located and how large it is it may get smaller, but it could be something else.  I would suggest that you discuss your question with your daughter's primary care provider.
