Salmon patch birthmark
Previous Next 6 of 7 Salmon patches/stork bites

Sometimes called stork bites or angel kisses, salmon patches are reddish or pink patches. They are often found above the hairline at the back of the neck, on the eyelids or between the eyes. These marks are caused by collections of capillary blood vessels close to the skin.

Salmon patches may fade as the child grows, though patches at the nape of the neck may be permanent. Salmon patches don't require any type of treatment.
