'Mongolian Spot': Green/Blue Mark

I have a green/blue blotch next to one of my ears. It has been there since I was born. If anyone sees it, they try to wipe it off thinking it is pen smeared on my face!

Edit - After doing some research I have discovered it is probably a 'Mongolian spot' that I have developed due to my East Asian heritage. People of East Asian and Turkish descent get them the most, followed by East Africans, Polynesians and Native Americans. Apparently they normally disappear before puberty, but mine's still there along with one on my knee (I always thought it was a bruise, but maybe it is also a Mongolian spot!).
