My 2yr old has a patch of black hair growing on her birthmark on her leg. Is this normal?

My 2yr old has always had a "light mocha" birthmark on her leg, just below the knee. Well, about a month ago, it grew black hair on it. She doesn't have any other body hair besides this. Is that normal?

It happene to my brother. I can't remember what it's called, but I remember it was something the doctors kept an eye on it because it *could* have been something more serious. It never was, but they looked at it at every appointment. I'll talk to my mom later and ask her about it so I can tell you more :)

In the meantime, make an appointment with your daughter's doctor. No matter what it is, they should know about it and do their thing to figure it out.
