Infant has black spots on legs, arms on area of hair growth. What is the cause?

Hello, My daughter is a month old, an I noticed a few weeks ago that she is beginning to get little black spots on her legs; from her ankles and up. She has a few on her arms as well. They look tiny little pimples but without the raised effect. These black spots are only on the top parts of her legs, like where the hair grows. Please help me, thank you

Thank you for your query.

The black spots that you describe are very common. They are called freckles or moles and nothing needs to be done. As the infant grows a lot of changes would take place in the skin too and you need not worry about them. If you still are concerned then the best option would be to discuss the issue with your doctor/pediatrician.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.
