      We are not doctors Shawn. Go to a dermatologist. If you go to your primary care dr. they will farm you out to a dermatologist. So, just go to the dermatologist and find out what is going on. You will feel better when you do!

    Please have a doctor take a look. In the meantime, check out the ABCDE rules of birth marks here:

    I have two birthmarks and they don't look like that. Have you accidently scratched it and how long has it been like that? If it has always been that way, don't worry, but if it has suddenly changed, and you haven't scratched it, you should see your doctor for advice.
