My two month old was born with a patch of dark hair on his left arm. He was born with a full head of hair and this random patch. The doctors don't know what to make of it and we're waiting to see a dermatologist but I was curious to see if anyone else had seen anything like it before. The skin underneath isn't discolored so we dont think it's a birthmark. Any ideas??
