Dermatologist Questions Freckles

My daughter has more freckles than anyone else in our family. Why is this?

My daughter has a ton of freckles. Nobody else in our family does, so I'm curious as to why this could've happened and how common a situation like this is.

Freckles are not a big deal. If she’s light and goes in the sun, make sure she wears sunscreen.
Freckles or ephelids are usually genetic but can be associated with disorders VERY rarely please schedule an appoint with us to discuss
This is genetic related. Recessive gene.
