We took DS to the ped yesterday for a 2 week check up and she pointed out that the very small (what looks like a blood blister) red dot on the tip of his nose was a possible hemangioma, or strawberry birthmark. She said that they normally get between 5-7 cm and disappear before age ten. Considering that it is on the tip of his nose, it seems like that would cover his nose. I need to do more research about it, but I thought I would ask here to see if anyone else has had a child with a facial hemangioma and if they had it treated or not. I know it seems like treatment is very controversial, but I fear that he would be made fun of. Maybe that isnt the worst thing in the world, but if it can be safely removed, Id rather him not lose self confidence because of it. It seems very likely that he would get made fun of with it being right on his nose. Maybe its just vain of me to want it to go away, but I do. I'm wondering if anyone else has a child with one or has any experiences?
