How do I get rid of a birth mark?

I am a girl and I have a birthmark on my armpit. Why do I want it removed you ask? Well it looks like I haven't shaved my armpits for months!! It is so embarrassing when I wear a tank top or I am at the pool.

Can it be removed or lightened? Thanks!

Here's a thought I don't know if it'll work or not but you can try getting a tattoo of skin there you know cover it up.

the only problem with that, is if you are too young to get a tattoo, or if you are like me, go to a private school and aren't allowed to put on fake tattoos. ( stupid right?)
Report as

That's sad.

who, in their right mind, would put a tattoo on their armpit? As a human being, you sweat, and as a girl, you shave. I doubt any tattoo artist would do it
Report as
lol, right? some of the ppl in my school expect girls to not sweat, and its like: what is WRONG with you? we aren't perfect ya know.

There is probably some form of laser treatment that would help. Contact a dermatologist.

I think that the only thing that would help would have to be get it surgically removed from your body... That's about the only way to do it..

That is never going to go away! I think that you should talk to your doctor or something. My sister had a birthmark and she kept on scratching on it then it came off! Just some advice

If it's more like a large freckle try lemon juice??? I can't try it on my birth mark cuz I can't reach it but I use it to lighten my hair and freckles.

When I was younger I had three birth marks. They are all gone now and I never went through any treatment. Birth marks usually go away or fade by themselves.

it is better to go to a skin doctor , because we don't know how is this mark ,, is it colored , has it hair , is it deep or superficial , also big or small ,, I advice you to go to skin specialist any body may increase the problem for you by wrong advice !

you shouldn't want to get rid of it because it shows you that it was the thing that came with you on your body right when you were born it should be a memory but that's just my opinion :)

Witch hazel gets rid of freckles. It might work for birthmarks. But not sure. You can try it to see if it works.

I hate to say this, but did I say this was a life crisis? No. It's a simple question. I don't put my personal problems on the internet. Take that how you will. I try to be kind, funny, and mature on this website, but when others don't offer that same curtesy, I get upset. So no, this is not my "biggest problem", but it was a small question, hoping that no one would make comments like these.

probably you can get laser surgery, but I have a big one on my left arm (ha that's probably why i'm left handed lol!) and it's big!!!! I'm proud of it I guess, but if you don't pay attention to it, people won't really notice. They'll notice if you hold your arm and look around like someone's looking at it.

Why would you want to cover something that represents your birth? Birthmarks are beautiful! I have one that looks like clouds down my arm. Having a birthmark is noting to be ashamed about.

I have a friend (she's only in 4th grade) and she has a birthmark on her eyelids. But honest, they look really cool and besides don't ask here, ask a skin doctor! Either laser surgery or just leaving alone is my best advice, though. Ask a doctor before surgery, of course!

I had a big one on my left thigh. I had it surgically removed. The DR left a bad
scar, but I am ok with it. I was so embarrassed having my quarter sized birth mark on my thigh. Scar removal is a lot better now, go to a plastic surgeon. I just went to a regular MD.
