My 2 1/2 month old was born with what I think the doctor said was a blood vessel mark on her cheek(bright red...looks likens scratch or cut) last night I noticed it looks bruised underneath the spot, like yOu can see the vein popping up and the spot is raised and hard. What could this be? Should I got to the doctor?

Could it be a hemangioma?

I probably wouldn't rush to the doctor, but would bring it to their attention at next visit.  If it's bothering the baby, call the nurse and ask.  Make sure they know it's not new.  winky.gif
