My kids skin is so translucent!

Since birth, you could see a big vein under my daughters eye.. it almost looks like a black eye, people don't notice unless I point it out, whew.. but has this happened to anyone elses kid?
I asked the doctor about it when she was about 1, and he said it'd fade over the years. She's almost 4 and it's almost getting darker. Any similar stories? Did they end up fading? Thanks!

  • Yes, my son's skin is very very fair! He has one big vein in his neck that is very noticalbe and sticks out when he gets excited or angry!
    He is now 8 years old and is still just as fair. So to answer your question, for him age didn't make a big difference, but he still is only 8! Time will tell:)
