The cause of the birthmark is unknown. It is often hereditary in nature, hence its name. It is often seen at birth, but often develops after birth and even possibly only in old age.
From a cosmetic point of view, the most common confusing moles are:
Its millet-penny-shaped form is the lentil, which is a light brown or brownish-black, intact surface. It can multiply in very large numbers over the years. Beware of larger, dark, bluish-black dye moles. If scraped, improperly tried to remove, or just damaged, stained cancer can develop from them.
The “movement” of the dyed moles, their transformation into malignancy, is indicated by their swelling, inflammation, burning sensation, itching, tingling, the formation of an irregular edge pigment yard, and their darkening at different layer depths. The edge spread is characterized by the diversity of staining, we often find a brownish, black and bluish pigment network.
If such a mole begins to enlarge or inflammation or redness occurs in the vicinity, show it to a specialist immediately! Even lighter brown lenses can only be removed by a specialist, as he or she can decide whether removing or disturbing them will not make the previously harmless mole malignant.
Stains larger than the lens, slightly protruding from the skin, rough-surfaced, often heavily overgrown with hair, are also moles, which can sometimes be very extensive. These so-called hairy, pigmented moles.
In old age, there are a large number of flat outgrowths with a more or less greyish-brown, greasy feel and nail-covering. These can be removed without a medical intervention without a trace. Of course, as they age, new ones can appear.
Bloody mole (fire spot)
It is often seen in the newborn or shortly after birth as a purple, burgundy spot on the face, neck, and less frequently on the limbs. Initially, it fades at the touch of a finger, but turns red again when the pressure is removed.
This shows that the blemish is a grouped, circumscribed dilation of the capillaries of the skin. In old age, when it has already developed and grown, it is difficult to help with this, but in newborns or infants, early treatment can be very effective.
In such cases, do not hesitate and do not expect the young child to “grow out” on his or her own, but turn to a specialist as soon as possible so as not to miss the favorable time when it is still easy to help in trouble.
Quite often, there are tiny, pinhead-like, bright red spots on the skin. These are also moles formed from dilated blood vessels. The doctor removes them with a glowing platinum needle or diathermic current in a matter of seconds without pain or a trace.
