My son was always getting funny marks and bruises at this spot on his back. The only thing I could think of was something poking him on his car seat but I checked and there was nothing. Then I watched him closely in the playground and realised that when he came down the slide he would fly down and lay back at the end and then land on his bottom. His lower back was hitting the lip of the end of the slide. Mystery solved!
Your child seems a bit young for this but if it looks like a bruise or graze I would be looking closely at any toys he sits in or rides on etc. Good luck working it out. X

Sorry if someone has asked this already, is it like varicose veins?
I hope you get some answers today!

No idea but it would have me worried as well. What time is the ultrasound?

Yeah it is like varicose veins, Olive Oil.
App at 12 noon, Moxy, so I'm leaving in 45 minutes.
The red area has a surface texture and appearance of a scar today.

I hope you get some answers from the ultrasound. I would be worried too. Good luck - I've got my fingers crossed for a simple, stress free explanation

Well the ultrasound was all clear, I'm delighted with that but still no clue as to what's going on.
I've booked in for the doctors first thing tomorrow.
Hopefully it will be fading by then and not getting worse.

Well the Dr was more concerned about the red, burn-like mark than the veins today.
She said she doesn't think the two things are related.
In fairness, she didn't see the veins yesterday and of course today they're gone.
She got me an appointment with a paediatrician tomorrow and I overheard her saying the the mark looked like a NF1 lesion.
Of course I looked that up but I doubt whatever is going on with DD that it's as bad as that without other indicators.

I think throwing NF1 out there as a possibility is pretty extreme... Your little one's mark reminds me a bit of my niece who had a few hemangiomas on her back. They are completely benign and harmless and usually disappear by about five years old. When I googled it though, there are some really wicked looking pictures of raised red growths - my niece didn't have that type. It just looked like a raised lump that looks like a bruise with some redness on top. Kind of like the pic below. But if the veins have gone away now, then maybe it is just a knock of some kind? I thought maybe a hemangioma was developing and wanted to reassure you that if it was that, it was nothing serious. You wouldn't know my niece had them at all and she had one as big as the pic below.
