Thank you for your reply but nevus spilus looks like its flat on top of the skin my birth mark has sunken little pits almost like boxcar scars hmm any other ideas?

That was the interesting part, in that there can be atrophic form too, albeit, rarely.

Do you happen to know what it's caused from by any chance?
