The 'Twacha Clinic'
These are the colored spots on the skin normally present at the time of birth. It is essentially a spot, patch, or lump that looks different from the rest of the newborn baby’s skin. They vary as per shapes and colors and may be a flat or raised mark, the size of a pinhead or might be over a large area of the child’s skin. The color of birthmarks can be tan, brown, red, pink or any other color of that matter. They are of mostly two types - pigmented birthmarks, which happen due to excess of pigment in one part of the skin; and vascular birthmarks, which happen due to the abnormal blood vessels in the skin.
