I was born with a pigmented birthmark . It runs from buttocks to my feet. They look loke cafe au lait . How can i remove ot permanently ?
Hi Ms Shaza Zahir, I am sorry to say this, but these kinds of birthmarks can not be removed and one good thing about them is that they are very faint in color, so it is difficult to notice them. I suggest you stop worrying about it and enjoy your life. If it is very dark then consult a dermatologist. Warm regards, Dr. Yogesh. D
