Post subject: Strawberry marks
Hi, my 4 week old has developed some marks. She has one large strawberry birth Mark on her side which is fine and clearly a birthmark, however she has also developed four other small red marks, three on her torso and one on the back of her neck. Im not sure if these are also small strawberry marks or something to be worried about.

Anyone have any experience of this?

well the hv was perplexed, she thought they were strawberry marks but was surprised at how many she has. I went to the dr and have been referred to the pediatrician to check them out! Fingers crossed its nothing to worry about.

Well the consultant wasnt too worried - she has to have a follow up appointment in 6 months to track the growth of her marks.

She may have to have a scan to check if there are any internal strawberry marks but he needed to check with the 'leading' conultant and is calling me to let me know.

It's obviously pretty rare to have so many of them!!

Thanks for the replies Smile
