Default Changing colour

This is my first post. I have a pws on my eyelid/forehead and I think my daughter has one too as she has a pink birthmark about 5cm across on the back of her neck.

My pws has been red all my life but this week it has changed to dark purple. It also aches and if I touch it it hurts the way a bruise does when you press it.

Has anyone has this kind of experience?

My PWS is all over my face. As I'm turning 30 this year I have also noticed this problem of my birthmark turning to a dark purple. Usually this only happens when I get really cold outside. However, now this has been more permanent coloring and it hurts to from the size growing and sagging. The left side of my face is starting to look as if I've had a seizure. =/ I don't know why this is happening, but I knew things would get worse as I got older. I forget who right now, but someone warned me this would happen. Now it is happening.
