    Find information about types of skin discolorations you're often born with such as birthmarks and freckles.

    Birthmarks are colored skin spots that either are present at birth or develop shortly after birth. Birthmarks can be many different colors, including brown, tan, black, pale blue, pink, white, red, or purple.

    Some types of birthmarks are very common and others need special attention. View these pictures of birthmarks and see if the port wine stain, strawberry hemangioma, salmon patches, and others look familiar.

    There are several skin lesions that are very common and benign (non-cancerous). These conditions include moles, freckles, skin tags, benign lentigines, and seborrheic keratoses.
