@ali: It sounds like you're describing a birth mark, specifically a port wine stain. If it is indeed that, I'm happy to tell you that port wine stains are successfully treated by lasers as described in the episode on this page. For treatment, consult with a cosmetic dermatologist specializing in laser surgery. You can find a surgeon via The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.
