Red birthmarks on the human body
Moles are not unusual for a person or unusual. Long since, birthmarks could be considered as deformity and anger of God, and a sign of fate.
Of course, in fact, this is a clear, distinguishable formation on the skin that a person has from birth.
Moles, in most cases, are not a pathology or physical disability. Of course, it is a completely different thing, these are birthmarks that have irregular shapes and sizes and belong to skin pathologies. In addition, such moles are difficult to remove, while not harming human health.
Birthmarks are disorders of the development of the skin, which are characterized by the appearance of formations of various forms and sizes, which consist of nevus cells. This type of cell 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.
- Border birthmark is the most popular type of mole. It is formed on the skin for twenty years of life. Such birthmarks can appear on the legs, face, neck, body. They look like small dots or nodules and have a dark brown color.
- Red moles on the human body are, most often, the so-called strawberry hemangioma. These strawberry, red birthmarks are soft and bulging. They can be either the size of a freckle or have a sufficiently large diameter.
- Such spots are underdeveloped vascular material, which separated from the general circulatory system when the baby was still in the womb. These spots appear at birth and in the first days of life. Such moles appear in one child out of ten.
Strawberry hemangiomas disappear between the ages of five and ten years. That is why they are not advised to treat. You just need to wait until this birthmark turns pale or disappears. It is possible to remove such moles only when they are enlarged and prevent the body from functioning correctly.
One of the rarest species of birthmarks is the cavernous hemangioma. It may occur in one of one hundred newborns. The spot itself consists of mature and large elements of blood vessels, while it affects not only the superficial layers of the skin.
Basically, it 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 a child's life, and by the age of twelve they completely disappear. Sometimes, in place of the hemangioma remains almost imperceptible scar.
The stork bite is another kind of birthmark. Such moles are salmon-colored 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 appear only when the baby is straining or crying. They practically do not create cosmetic problems in later life.
Fiery nevus or wine stain is also moles that are red. They consist of dilated capillaries. They are considered permanent since they never change shade and do not fade. To get rid of such birthmarks, you can use a laser.
Mongolian spots are blue or pale gray. They can be found on the legs, back or buttocks. Such birthmarks can not be called rare.
