No one has told me what it is or what we can do if it continues to get larger. Children are often cruel and he starts school next year.

Thanks for writing in.
The mosaicism is a genetic problem.There is very little treatment options to offer in such cases.As long as there are only skin problems and no functional difficulties no treatment is needed.The pigmentation can cause social problems. Camouflage is a better option.Laser treatment can be tried but it is not 100% effective.
Discuss the options with your dermatologist.
