Even today, in xvoat is coivitli-iTd an enlightened age, many people seem to believe that birthmarks come because of some incident or ex'ent occurring lo the mother while carrying her child. The notion still persists that if a baby is born xxith a straxvbeiry mark, the mother either ate a lot of .strawberries during pregnancy or shoxven an uncontrollable desire for them. Quite often Ihe appearance? of a birthmark is blamed on some dreadful experience of the mother during pregnancy. There is no scientific evidence to support such beliefs. OIK- kind of binhmark is Knoxvn as the pigmented. or hairy mole. On Ihis subject a mother has recently written about her 15-year- old daughter. Tiie r ;irl has a dark brown binhmark \viih hair on it under her left eye, the mother says. About a year ago a small pimple appeared on the binhmark, xxhich has groxvn some since but not for Ihe past six months. In a situation such as this a specialist should certainly be con- suited and the mole watcher! with great care. Some of those are be I left alone and others treated. I believe that when treatment is indicated, removal by .surgery is now commonly preferred lo the electric needle. Other birthmarks are made up of a mass of liny blood vessels in Ihe skin. Often they are level xxitli the surl.-.ee of the skin but have a dark purplish color xxhich gives them the name of "port xx-ine" mark. llii'ilimarks also may consist ol blood vessels raised above the skin lex el which are sof 1 find spongy. These are called ' -traxv- berry" marks. Such m;\rl;s may nnpear jin.x \\lierp but are par- licul.-ii'ly common around ihe lips or !oni_'.HO. Another common variety of bii'ihniark made up of h! iod vessels is irregularly shaped and ii brain of hm 1 I'/'odle-ixuxor'.'

It is amazing, I have found, how having a baby of her own will turn a woman into a know-it-all, especially about medicine. Any timidity or uncertainly she may have liad during the first two or three weeks the baby Is at home disappears In a hurry. By the time the baby is. say, seven months old (the age of ours I, the new mother needs only a stethoscope and a measuring tape to set up shop -- in her own mind, that is. I have always beard that it was very trying to be the wife of r, doctor. T don't know about thai, and never will, but T surely can tell you how it feels to be the husband of a woman who THINKS she is a doctor. Take the last two or three days, during svhirh Megan had a tiny rash on the back of her neck. It was obvious to me, as it would have been to any father, that the child was coming 1 down with measles, mumps, diptheria, or for all a layman could tell, beriberi. I would have had Dr. Skinner on the phone hourly, from the second the first rash popped out, but Mary diagnosed it and said, "It's nothing. A Hltle heat rash. And she hasn't any fever." Cross-examination brought out that she hadn't taken Megan's temperature. "I can tell," she said, as confidently as if she were Dr. Osier. How could she tell? When' "riid the gift of thermomelerhood decend upon her; I could have shaken her as if she had been a thermometer! When (tie rash went away Mary didn't say anything about it, aivl neither did J. but bow is a fatln to kr.ow that his baby will be a •• lucky the next lime, and be abl. to throw off a dread "something 1 .so easily? As a matter of fact, T did cat Dr. Skinner, and he didn't ma!-. me feel any better by saying ]v tiptter let him talk to my wif-- Then they had a nice little chat. and the only way I know I war mentioned at ail was becansr Mary said. "I tried to get him not to. but he is always like that Panics." Panics, my foot! Natural, nor _ mal worry I call it. siightly raised. This goes under the name of "spider nevus" because the blood vessel* at the center look like the body of a spider, while the smaller ones passing ouuvard resemble the legs. What treatment should be used fur a birthmark? The answer to this question depends on the location, the si/e and the kind. Some can be removed c. 1 i.i-iig electric carbon radium, agents. Il is not alvvays wise to try to remove or fade a birthmark, even when it is located on a conspicuous part of the body like the f.,".'. K-.pfTi advice should always be obtained.
