Who Gets Birthmarks?
Birthmarks can occur in anyone, regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity. They are quite common and affect approximately one in ten babies. Some types of birthmarks are more common in specific populations, and the colors can range from bluish-gray, pink, red, or light brown, depending on your skin tone. Birthmarks are typically harmless and do not require treatment. However, some birthmarks may be associated with underlying medical conditions, such as neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes nerve tumors.
