    i have a 7 month old daughter and she has had this spot on her let since about 3 months old... it looks like a bruise which is what we thought it was bc it started showing up after we gave her her 3 mo shots, but it doesnt go away, if we take a shower with her and let water run on it for a while the mark completely disappears, but will come back after a couple of days. i was wondering if this is normal, my pediatrician says that its a birthmark and as long as it doesnt seem to bother her, which it doesnt, she is fine. i also was wondering since it seems to go away at times, will eventually go away or will it get bigger? and if so is it cause for concern? i appreciate the feedback in advance.
