A baby girl was born with large moles covering much of her skin, due to a rare condition.

Wu Zimiao, now two months old, was diagnosed with a type of birthmark called congenital melanocytic nevus.

Wu Zimiao's parents are trying to raise money for laser treatment to remove the moles.

They believe the large moles will "cause her problems with acceptance in society in the future if not treated".

The dark patches are mainly focused on Zimiao’s left shoulder and right arm, but also appear on her head and back.

Zimiao’s father, Wu Xianpo, told news agency CEN he had never seen anything like it, but was "relieved" when doctors told him the condition is easier to treat the younger the patient is.

The parents from Xinyi Township, in north China’s Hebei Province, are trying to raise the estimated 300,000 to 500,000 RMB (£31,500 to £52,600) needed for laser treatment.

Xianpo said the money will be "hard to find" for a migrant worker like himself, with his wife largely involved in farm work, too.

He vowed to do everything possible to give his little girl a "normal future".

Large congenital nevi is caused by mutations in the body’s cells during early development, with no known method of prevention.

While the moles do not cause any physical pain, they are often removed to prevent cancer.
