So my daughter was born with this strange mark on her face. She had an ultrasound today to see if it's the start of hemangioma but i'm worried it could be "port wine stain"? I really hope that it is neither of them... It hasn't grown in 10 days but the redness seems to change from day to day. Does anyone here have experience with either of these? I sure hope it doesn't get worse

sorry for the crappy photo it was taken with a phone I hope you can see it.

Thank you HeatherW97 for my siggy

My daughter has a hemangioma. It's located on the top right of her head, close to her temple.

The experience I have had with it was. It was red when she was born. At about a week old it started getting more red.

How old is your daughter? I will get Sadie's pics out and upload some so you can see her progress, if you want to.

My advice to you is that if it is a hemangioma, please look into getting her some care as soon as you can. Because, there are alot of things that they can do to help it not grow. They can give steroid shots, and laser surgery. I waited too long and Sadie will have to hers surgically removed.

If you want to talk more PM me, and we'll exchange information. I will try to find those pictures for you.

Thank you Sara-misfitinmn-for my beautiful siggy!!
