Question Do PWS grow and can more develop?

Hi all...my 6 month old daughter has a PWS between her nose & lip and down the side of her cheek...the one on her cheek has appeared in the last couple of months, before that it was a whiteish mark. I was just wondering, does anyone know if PWS's can grow over time or if more can develop through life??

PWS do not develop later in life. They are present at birth. PWS as a persoan ages can thicken and they can develop cobbling and blebs on the pws lesion.

Are you seeing growth? Would you be willing to share a photo either here or via email?
