Any spot, mark or a bump that is present on an infant at the time of birth is called a birthmark. Birthmarks are categorized according to their composition – they can be in the form of big patches or small moles.
Birthmarks caused due to the blood vessels are called Vascular birthmarks and are generally blue, red or purple in color. Some birthmarks are formed from the skin tissues like breast, lymphatic tissue and epidermal tissue. These types of marks are usually yellow or flesh colored.
Birthmarks are not known to produce any medical problems and sometimes fade with time. Birthmarks develop around the same time when the fetus is also developing. Doctors have cited the migration of cells as a cause. What happens is that once the cells start to increase, they produce tissue with the characteristics of their cell type.
There are no symptoms for pigmented birthmarks, aside from their general coloring. Vascular birthmarks first start to appear as flat lesions, likely at the time of birth. They can expand during the first few months, and slowly after ulcerating can disappear, leaving only a scar.
