My son is 3 weeks old, and since last week I've noticed a bluish patch around his right cheek and it seems to have grown larger. After researching on the internet I suspect it's Nevus of Ota. We are seeing a specialist in 2 weeks to find out what exactly it is. I'm so glad to have found someone with the same problem - have you started treatment for your daughter? I too have the same question about when to best start treatment. Could you post an update?
Hope we can stay connected!

I wasn't born with it I just noticed a dark blue ish black mark around my right eye when I was 15 or 16 I got myself to belive that I might have been hit by a ball. I'm looking for treatment next year 2013 but I want to know what works for everyon,?? I've never been a fan of makeup but MAC does the trick no one even nitices & it's water proof

Her left face is also slightly discolored. At first the pediatricians told us that she got bruised during the delivery but her delivery was smooth. Then they said it was a mongolian spot. We started dojng research on it after since we haven't heard of mongolian spots on the face. We saw a dermatologist and pediatrician and neither of them were sure of the diagnosis.
Thank you for sharing all your stories. I'm looking into treatments for her. Hearing all your experiences makes me want to shelter her as much as possible. Already we've been asked why she has a black eye.
Does anyone know of the youngest person treated with the laser?
@nabmerdika do you have before and after pictures that you can share?
Thank you so much!
