Customer Question
Hi, my 1 and half year...
Hi,

my 1 and half year old son has red marks on his leg.

He also has a port wine stain on his leg. Yet, I am not sure if this new mark that appeared all of a sudden is a port wine as well. It is a red line of about 3 to 4 inches long and about 1 cm in thickness.

There are no bumps or scaling on the skin.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
