My one year old daughter was diagnosed with a few epidermal nevi just a few months ago. One on her head above her ear (the only one on her left side), one on her ear (smallest lesion ), and one on her chest . The last few months I ve noticed she is getting another lesion on the side of her stomach. It is starting to grow the same way the one on her chest did and it s on the same side of her body. I wouldn t exactly call them linear, as I ve heard of ILVEN. She s a happy and healthy and otherwise normal 17 month old. She sees a dermatologist every six months. The lesions do change appearance, but don t seem to be growing at a fast rate. They are brown, except the on on her ear is light red and barely visible. What should I expect as far as growth? Since she has no other issues, are we safe from epidermal nevus syndrome that effects other parts of the body? Thank you for any information.
