Hello everyone

I've been reading a lot of posts here and looking at some pictures. My birth marks are on the right side of my face under the eye and slightly touching the upper lip, on my temples, on the left part of my jaw and on both sides of my neck. I was told that my birthmark was PWS, but it seems much lighter in color and it is not as bright red as it was 7-8 yrs ago (I am 24 yrs old). It is not getting darker, there is no texture to it and it gets mistaken for acne due to it's shape/appearance (the part that is on the right side of my face). Is it possible that PWS fades with age or doesn't change in color? or is it possible that I don't have PWS and it's rather something else (it has been present since birth)? I am also curious if anyone could recommend a good doctor in Boston, MA area and what are the costs that came with appointments (rough estimates would be greatly appreaciated) Thnx so much for any help, advice, or response.
