She was correctly diagnosed by a pediatric dermatologist. It would be great if you could post another picture that is more recent.
Hmm, I guess I though they were one in the same, just different values, if you will. Please keep in mind I am UBER new to this whole thing.... I'll still try to take another pic. Can you tell me how they differ in looks, etc? Thanks for all your info already!

Hi Katie, I'm taking him to the Pedi in a couple weeks for his 18 MO ckup, and talk to his Pedi about it. See what he thinks about getting a referral to a specialist, if needed. I'll keep you posted! XOXO
