Nearly every person has birthmarks. They are usually entirely harmless and in most cases, a change in size or shape of the birthmark will also be harmless. Nevertheless, it is advisable to consult your GP or dermatologist when a birthmark changes because changing birthmarks can also be a precursor of skin cancer.
What can be signs for concern?
A normal or changing birthmark should not:
- Change in colour or appearance, which include different shades of pigmentation, redness in the birthmark, but also the disappearance of pigmentation
- Change its shape
- Itch, sting, or become painful
- Develop crusts
