We're at rock bottom right now because of a mark my daughter was born with on her face. I think we've worried ourselves sick that it's a port wine stain as all our reading has told us they don't go away.
Our daughter is 5 weeks old and was born with a very feint pink patch on her upper lip. As the days have gone by, this patch has become redder but still flat. It is a lot more noticeable when it's cold as the rest of her skin goes paler.
One paediatrician we saw said it was a stork bite and referred us to a specialist. Another told us it was a hemangioma but didn't say which type. Everything I've read about hemangiomas say they are raised but our daughters is completely flat. It does look like the borders are slightly changing too and it is spreading slowly. It has also moved across the border of her upper lip so it looks like she has a little line of red lipstick on one half of her lip.
I know I won't find definitive answers here but was wondering if anyone else had a similar experience?
Thanks for reading
