Default Cafe-au-Lait?

Hey all...I'm hoping my question is in the right forum. I did a brief search, but couldn't / didn't know or find where this goes...

Ok, I have a pws on my forehead & eye lid, not sure if that's needed or not, but i figure the more info, the better, right?

When I was in about 1st grade (might have been early 2nd grade or even kindergarten) I noticed some small, oval light brownish marks on my wrists. They're really hard to see unless I'm tanned (which doesn't happen often). My questions is, could these marks be cafe-au-lait? If so, do I need to seek treatment for them as well?

Thanks!
~Eri

Cool

if it doesn't bother you, you really don't need treatment. and you said you can barely notice them at all, so I wouldn't worry about it.
