Red moles on the human body

Красные родинки на теле человека

Moles are not for the person something unusual or unaccustomed. Long ago, birthmarks could be considered as ugliness and anger of God, and a sign of fate.

Of course, in fact, this is a clear, distinct education on the skin that a person has since birth.

Moles, in most cases, are not a pathology or a physical defect. Of course, quite another matter, this birthmarks, which have irregular shapes and sizes and are related to skin pathologies. In addition, such moles are difficult to remove, while not harming human health.

Birthmarks are violations of the development of skin that are characterized by the appearance of different in shape and size formations, which consist of nevus cells. This type of cells is an accumulation of skin cells that contain melanosomes or pigment granules (melanocytes).

  • There are several different types of moles. In this article we will talk about some of them. By the way, it is worth noting that birthmarks can appear on the mucous membranes and conjunctivitis.
  • The borderline birthmark is the most popular kind of moles. It is formed on the skin for twenty years of life. Such birthmarks can appear on the legs, face, neck, trunk. They look like small dots or nodules and have a dark brown color.
  • Red moles on the human body - this, most often, the so-called, strawberry hemangioma. These strawberry, red birthmarks are soft and convex. They can be as large as a freckle, and have a sufficiently large diameter.
  • Such spots are the underdeveloped vascular material that separated from the common circulatory system when the child was still in the womb. These spots appear at birth and in the first days of life. Such birthmarks appear in one child out of ten.

Strawberry hemangiomas are lost at the age of five to ten years. That is why, they are not advised to treat. You just have to wait until this birthmark turns pale or disappears. You can remove such birthmarks only in the event that they increase and prevent the body from functioning properly.

One of the rarest species of birthmarks is cavernous hemangioma. It can occur in one of a hundred newborns. The spot itself consists of mature and large elements of the vessels, while it affects not only the surface layers of the skin.

Basically, this is a loose bluish-red mass, which does not have such clear boundaries as that of the earthy one. Such birthmarks grow only in the first year of the child's life, and by the age of twelve they completely disappear. Sometimes, on a place of a hemangioma there is practically imperceptible scar.

Stork bite is another kind of birthmarks. Such birthmarks have an orange-pink color and appear as spots on the eyelids, near the nose or mouth, and also on the forehead. They are visible up to two years, and then begin to manifest only when the baby strains or cries. They practically do not create cosmetic problems, in the subsequent life of the person.

A fiery nevus or a wine spot is also a birthmark that has a red color. They consist of expanded capillaries. They are considered permanent, because they never change the shade and do not disappear. To get rid of such birthmarks you can use a laser.

Mongolian spots have a blue or pale gray color. They can be found on the legs, back or buttocks. Such birthmarks can not be called rare.

Coffee stains can be of different types: chloasma, lentigo, birthmark. If there are more than seven of them on the skin of a child, you need to consult a doctor.
