  • Be sure to Google this and do some reading up on it.

    I have 2 out of 3 children with it for no reason and it doesn't bother them at all. Their spots are on their abdomen and can only be seen in the summer when they wear their swimsuits. The youngest of the 2 to have them has noticed that they are actually "fading" away and beginning to look like her normal skin color, but the older of the 2 still has hers.

    You can't get rid of them, but you do need to protect those exposed areas more carefully out in the sun, due to the lack of pigmentation.
