Hey all, I'm a 25 year old Indian American who has had Nevus of Ota for over 15 years now that I know of. I have gone to so many doctors and specialists only to be told it's only blood vessels that have popped under my skin, but I wasn't satisfied with that answer. I have tried a laser treatment once, but wasn't seeing any change after many times of going. I'm so thrilled to have found a name for this birthmark. I usually always wear make up to cover it up even if I'm running to the grocery store, it's slightly annoying, but I hate getting looks or asked what happened. Mine typically stays blue/black and is spread on my entire upper right cheek under my eye. I read about Q-switching laser treatment being successful, but I was wondering if you guys have any other ideas of possible treatments??
