Q.

Moles

Both myself and husband have fair skin and quite a few moles and freckles. Our baby also has fair skin but no freckles or moles. We would like to know if moles only appear later on in children. I am doing everything I can to ensure his skin is safe from the sun at all times as I do not want to cause any damage to the skin with him being so fair. Thanks.

Be very careful with your baby when in the sun. Use a baby suncream such as the Annique baby sun cream.Also get him a UV swimsuit when he is slightly older for when he swims.It is not possible to tell you if and when your son will develop any moles.
