Skin spots in baby # 039; s

  1. Many babies suffer from spots on the skin after birth. The spots have a pink or red color and often look a bit erratic or bumpy. There are different types of stains that can be born with a child: a stork bite, a port wine stain or a strawberry stain.

Stork bite

  1. This is a pink or red spot that usually appears a few days after birth. The spots appear on the face, neck, on the eyelids or in the hairline. Some spots can also be under the skin, making them barely visible. A stork bite is nothing more than a group of blood vessels in the skin that disappear after a few months. Sometimes you may see the stork bite briefly reappear in toddlers who are in a temper or cry very loudly. The name of the spots comes from the myth that the stork brings children. The spots would be the sign that the stork has held the baby with the beak.

Wine stain

  1. These large red or purple spots occur in about two in a thousand babies. They are caused by a locally increased number of blood vessels in the skin. Port-wine stains are congenital disorders in the development of the skin and occur mainly on the face. In newborns, the spots are light to dark red. In later life they often become more purple in color and can also become thicker on the skin. For a number of years, port wine stains have been treated with laser. The blood vessels are temporarily very heated, causing damage. The body cleans up the damaged vessels and the red color will become lighter / disappear. Port-wine stains can be part of Sturge-Weber syndrome. In addition to red spots, there are often also abnormalities of the nerves. The risk of this syndrome is especially high if the port-wine stains appear on the forehead and around the eyes Port-wine stains should not be confused with haemangiomas (strawberry stain). This also involves many blood vessels in the skin, but these can still develop later in life and often disappear by themselves.

Strawberry spot

  1. When the baby has red spots that feel lumpy and are therefore on the skin, there is a hemangioma, also called a strawberry spot (see image on the right). It also appears in the first days after birth, but can grow further. The spots often grow for a few months, and then remain for years and only then disappear. Strawberry stains can occur in other parts of the body besides the face and neck. If the stains have not gone away after a few years, they can be removed with a minor procedure.
