Stork Bites:)

Pink Birthmarks! Sean has some of them on the bridge of his nose, at the lower area of his right eye, just below his eye brow, on his back and on his scrotum (funny!).

Flat pink birthmarks occur (”stork bites”) in more than 50 percent of newborns. The ones in front are often referred to as “an angel’s kiss”.

All the birthmarks on the bridge of the nose and eyelids clear completely. Those on the eyelids clear by 1 year of age; those on the bridge of the nose may persist for a few additional years.

Those on the forehead that run from the bridge of the nose up to the hairline usually persist into adult life. Laser treatment during infancy should be considered. Most birthmarks on the nape of the neck also clear, but 25 percent can persist into adult life.
