Birthmark Basics: Stork Bite


One in ten babies is born with – or develops – skin blemishes. Here are the essential facts on the six most common kinds and the newest ways to treat them.

Stork Bite/Angel’s Kiss

What it is:

A type of hemangioma that involves few blood vessels near the skin’s surface. When the patch is flat, pink and on the nape of the neck, it’s called a stork bite. A patch on the forehead is known as an angel’s kiss.


When to worry

These birthmarks are harmless and often barely noticeable. An angel’s kiss usually fades by the time a child is two; a stork bite may never completely disappear, but it’s usually light or hidden by hair. Occasionally the only time these birthmarks are noticipable is when the child cries or strains.


Treatment:

An angel’s kiss that doesn’t fade may be lightened with laser therapy.
