Port-Wine Stain(Nevus Flammeus)
What causes the Port-Wine Stain?
- dark pigmented area
- Eye problems: may develop if the port-wine stain is on the eyelid area. If a child has a port-wine stain next to an eye then an eye specialist will normally check the child regularly until they are adult.
For port-wine stains that have become bumpy, thick, or raised, doctors sometimes need to use another type of laser or surgery. Port-wine stains can also develop grape-like growths of small blood vessels called vascular blebs — these aren't usually cause for concern but they often bleed and may need to be removed.
- laser treatment
- oral meds- anti-inflammatory
- embarrassment- is pretty much the only major life effect because it can be easily covered with makeup or treated.
