His Birthmark Was Actually A Scar
December 2, 2016 2:13am CST
I don't remember our visitor having birthmarks on his face, so I asked him about it. The brown spots on his right cheekbone turned out to be healed wounds from a bike accident. Now they look like balat (cafe au lait spots) and noticeable even if he is moreno (tan). Do you have birthmarks that you like or don't like? Would you have them removed? I myself have many moles (flat and raised, brown and black) and many cafe au lait spots, but not really worried about them yet.

I'm starting to notice a few very light "liver spots," and when I spoke to my dermatologist about them, she didn't seem too concerned at all. "Just part of growing old" she told me. Great! I didn't think I was that old yet! haha
