Suggest remedy for raised rashes in thigh

In the past year I have developed a red birthmark on my inner thigh. It looks like a rash, but it is not raised or itchy and is about the size of a silver dollar . I am 33, a healthy weight, fair skinned and I think it developed shortly after my 2 year old was born.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It could be a Port wine stain. It is only of cosmetic concern. If you want to remove, it you may try Pulsed Dye Laser. Consult your dermatologist for more details.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,
Dr. Siva Subramanian

Hi,

This sounds most likely like a hemangioma or some sort of vascular malformation. If it is not bothering you, then you can leave it as such. Otherwise, you should consult a plastic surgeon, who might excise it.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
