Hi. I have a strange red mark on my face. I don't think it is acne related because it is a distinct shape and size and quite a bit larger than anything acne could create. I have had it for quite a few years now. I went to a dermotologist about it, and he didn't know what it was. All he could say was that laser surgery could be used to change the color, which seemed pretty drastic to me. Its strange because it doesn't itch, doesn't hurt, doesn't change.. and i don't really know what it is. So i guess my first question is if anyone here has had this type of mark before. The doctor suggested it could be a "late onset birth mark", but i don't know if he even knew what he was talking about with that

I'd probably consult with a couple more Dermatologists before making any decisions about what to do. There are many things you could try, but I'd start with less invasive procedures before having laser surgery done. But since I have no clue what the mark is from, I am not comfortable giving you advice on what to do about it.
