Hi, I'm a 16 year old girl and I have a Café-au-lait birthmark on the inside of my left leg and I'm pretty self conscious about it, I don't feel comfortable wearing short pants because of it. I have looked up about how to remove it and all I saw were laser treatments. I don't want to undergo laser treatments, I would prefer a natural, in expensive remedy, thanks .
Is It Possible to Get Rid of Café-au-lait Birthmarks Using Lemon Juice? If Not is There a Natural Remedy?

Unfortunately, there are no "natural" remedies for pigmented birthmarks. Lasers are often not effective either. There are some bleaching creams that a dermatologist might be able to prescribe which would be inexpensive.
