Unless it is going to cause some other problem, most doctors do the wait and see approach. My son has as trawberry birthmark on his belly and we were told by both his pediatrician and our pediatric derm to just leave that one alone and they would only treat it if something happened to (ie: ulceration or if his pants irritated it). I know it's hard, but just keep a close eye on it and if you see any changes go back to the doctor. If you are really unsure, get another opinion.

Good luck!!!!
