I am very new at posting on pages like this, hope I am doing it right. I am 42 and had a hairy nevus birthmark that covered my whole right arm and a "thumb print" on the very centre of my forehead. I had grafts on my arm and the "spot" was removed from my forehead leaving a thin line that you can't notice unless pointed out. My arm is scared and kids are cruel etc so I grew up with crappy comments. As for my "spot".....I really love my baby photos that have my spot it was quite large (a large thumb print) and I would have probably got a bad time over it if it was left there, but many times I have wished it was left alone, who knows It was removed when I was three. If you choose to remove the birthmark, please make sure you have many photos with such an individual and unique characteristic. My parents were told that I was "blessed to have such a mark" by some Indian people viewing me in my pram (way back in the late 60's) they were very amazed to see a child with such a mark Kids with hairy nevus birthmarks are the cutest kids ever I have no memory of having my spot removed.
I am yet to see a boy with a hairy nevus birthmark......I am wondering if it is a girl thing.
My very best wishes go to your daughter xx
