Anybody know what these marks are?

DS is 4 weeks old. He has had these red marks (almost like bruises) on the outside of both thighs since birth. What are they? Bruises? Birthmarks? Will they go away?

 They look like a bruise to me. I'd take him and get him checked out to be safe.

That's what I thought when I noticed them in the hospital and figured it was from birth. They just never went away...He has an appt Friday.

I'd say birthmark but ask his doctor at his next appointment.

My dd has the redish purple birth mark on the back of her head and neck. Similar to your ds's. Hers has shank but not gone away.

Birthmarks my dad has big ones on her butt and back. They look like bruises. They have faded a lot.

My son has a mark kind of like that, not exactly. It is sometimes white sometimes red. But its big and on the leg like that. He's had it since birth too and is now 7 and it didn't go away. Had it checked by a doctor and they said birth mark.
