Birthmarks almost never hurt you. For most birthmarks you don't have to do anything. Babies who have vascular birthmarks usually need to see a skin doctor (dermatologist) to find out if it needs to be treated. This is important when a birthmark is in a certain spot like near the eye or near the lip. A skin doctor also can tell you if there are ways to make a birthmark fade or become lighter. Here are some things the doctor might use or suggest:
Medicine taken by mouth or given in a shot.
Special types of lasers that can make birthmarks lighter or smaller.
Surgery might be used to get rid of moles.
Special makeup sometimes can hide birthmarks that don't go away on their own.
