Bleeding birthmark on four month old

It is impossible to diagnose your four month old's birthmark without and exam or at least photographs.  From your description, it may be a vascular birthmark.  I would discuss treatment options with your pediatrician.  It may be possible that a laser treatment could be a treatment option.
