Red moles on the human body

Красные родинки на теле человека

Moles are not unusual or unusual for a person. From ancient times, birthmarks could be considered as ugliness and anger of God, and a sign of fate.

Of course, in fact, this is a clear, distinguishable skin formation that a person has from birth.

Moles, in most cases, are not a pathology or physical disability. Of course, another thing entirely is 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 the skin, which are characterized by the appearance of various form and size formations that 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 forms on the skin over 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 is most often the so-called strawberry hemangioma. These strawberry, red birthmarks are soft and convex. They can be both the size of a freckle and have a sufficiently large diameter.
  • Such spots are underdeveloped vascular material that is 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 out of ten children.

Strawberry hemangiomas aged five to ten years disappear. That is why, they are not advised to treat. You just need to wait until this birthmark turns pale or disappears. Such moles can only be removed if they increase and prevent the body from functioning properly.

One of the rarest species of birthmarks is cavernous hemangioma. It can occur in one in a hundred newborns. The stain itself consists of mature and large elements of blood 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 an 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 a hemangioma, an almost imperceptible scar remains.

A stork bite is another type of birthmark. Such moles are orange-pink in color and appear as spots on the eyelids, near the nose or mouth, as well as on the forehead. They are visible until two years old, and then begin to appear only when the baby is tensing or crying. They practically do not create cosmetic problems in the subsequent life of a person.

Fiery nevus or wine stain are also moles that are red in color. They consist of dilated capillaries. They are considered permanent because they never change color or disappear. You can get rid of such birthmarks with a laser.

Mongolian spots are blue or pale gray. They can be found on the legs, back or buttocks. Such birthmarks cannot be called rare.

Coffee stains come in many forms: chloasma, lentigo, moles. If there are more than seven on the skin of a child, you need to consult a doctor.
