Birthmarks Come in Many Shapes and Colors
Flat and Pigmented
In many cases, birthmarks appear as flat sections of differently colored skin. Colors can range from a light pink, or salmon color, to a dark red. Other types may appear as light brown or blue gray.
Raised and Red
One of the most common types of birthmarks are hemangiomas. These typically develop within the first few months of birth as raised pink, bluish, or red bumps on the skin.
Small, Round Spots
Moles are sometimes considered birthmarks. They are usually small, round brown spots, but can be pink, skin-colored, or black.
