Hi, I am sorry some people are mean about your birthmark. They must be feeling bad about themselves, so don't let it hurt you too much. I have read that laser treatment can help with birthmarks, or maybe plastic surgery, but laser treatment would be my first choice. I had laser treatment for hirsutism--excess hair growth on my chin, and it did help a lot, but did not completely eliminate it. It was worth the $500 cost. Check out laser treatment, and good luck!!!!
