Worrybomb has a small “stork mark”, some people call them angels kisses (I would imagine those who call it this, are American!). It darkens slightly when she cries or is stressed or in this case has a nice bath.
Colloquially the Telangiectatic Nevus or Naevus Simplex are also called “Stork Bites” or “Salmon Patches”.
These are the most common type of vascular birthmark – about half of all babies are born with a stork mark. These are flat red marks usually found on the forehead, the eyelids, bridge of the nose, upper lip or nape of the neck. The skin is not thickened and feels no different than anywhere else on the body, the only real difference being the appearance. The majority of stork marks fade away completely by 12 to 18 months, although some on the neck may last longer. I have read that a little olive oil helps to speed this up.
