Baby born with '12' birthmark on forehead

Baby born with '12' birthmark on forehead
A family and doctors alike, were left puzzled when Hanru van Niekerk was born with an unusual ’12’ birthmark on his forehead. Some believe he may have arrived early considering he was born on the 11th of November. His family noticed the number only a few days later when they brought the baby home.

Speaking about the matter, his great-grandmother, Catherine Jooste, 70, said: “My youngest daughter was the first one to see it and she said there is a 1 and a 2 on his forehead. We did not worry about it, his doctor said it will fade as he gets older.”

Also speaking about the phenomenon, Patrice Hyde, a dermatologist, said babies can develop birthmarks before or shortly after birth, which usually fade or disappear completely over time.
She said: “Hemangiomas are a bunch of tiny blood vessels that grow in a specific area on the skin — that’s why they usually look red or purple. No one knows what causes blood vessels to group together, but it’s good to know that most birthmarks aren’t a sign of any kind of illness and usually don’t hurt at all.”
