Is this true about a port wine stain?


Is it true you can remove a port wine stain on your skin (like a birthmark) by rubbing salt on it?
----------

NO.

That's the silliest thing I've ever heard. The affected person can see a dermatologist for possible laser remediation, but there are no home remedies for port wine stains. Don't try putting anything on it except for normal hygiene and cleanliness, or you could damage the skin and cause infection.  (+ info)

Anyone know of a good doctor in Colorado to remove Port-Wine Stain Birthmarks?


I'm looking for a doctor to remove my port-wine stain birthmark in Colorado. Please help.
----------

You might start by looking at the Vascular Birthmark Foundation website, www.birthmark.org. They can help you find a doctor who is experienced with PWS.

There are many different types of lasers that can be used to lighten PWS, and the best laser to use for a particular case depends on things such as the depth and diameter of the blood vessels. Make sure you go to a doctor who is familiar with PWS. If they don't know which laser to use for your case, you could have many treatments with little progress.  (+ info)

Can kids with a port wine stain play sports?


My son has pws that covers the whole left side of his face reaching to the top part of his head under his hair, and also a little on the right side of his cheek. Will he still be able to play sports example: football, baseball, etc...
I'm sure he could play sports. It's just a concern for me with the top part of his head and him getting hit in football. Just want to know if there is anyone with or knows someone who hasn't had any problems with pws and sports.
----------

Why wouldn't he be able to play sports?

A pws on his face is a part of him just like any mole, birthmark. I know it is much different than that but my point is that it should not prevent him from playing sports!  (+ info)

port wine stain birthmark laser treatment?


i have a port wine stain birthmark on my neck and cheek. i went and had my first ever treatment the other day, it was only a test treatment though to see how it goes. i was just wondering if anybody else has had a port wine stain treated? i was wondering how well it worked. can you get rid of a birthmark completely? how many sessions do you think it would take to make the birthmark fade really really light or go completely?
----------

I work at a derm office, and they do have a couple of patients currently undergoing laser treatment for the port wine stain. I see the progressive photographs and have to say that there is definite and amazing improvement in them. Not sure how many treatments, but it could be several...well worth it to have it cleared.  (+ info)
