You might try sending a photo to Dr. Nelson at http://birthmark.org/experts.php and he might be able to tell.

Thank you so much Missy. I don't have a good photo right now and will try to take one and send to Dr. Nelson later. But what do you think the one XROX posted. My son has the same mark and on the same spot only smaller. Sometimes it looks faint and sometimes it's red.

Two doctors in the hospital where my baby was delivered said it's just a stork bite that will go away in 1 or 2 years. Our pediatrician said the same thing. He didn't even want to refer us to the dermotologist. We are in Canada and cannot see the specialist without a reference from our family doctor. And even if he would refer us, it will take almost half a year to get to see the specialist. That's why I was upset.

Anyways, if you could let me know what do you think of XROX's photo, that would be very helpful for me.

Thanks.
