Hi and welcome!

It looks like a port wine stain, but you do need to go to see a specialist for a solid diagnosis.

Congratulations on your daughter! Enjoy!

Hi and welcome!

I have never heard of any home remedy to treat pws. Since the vascular system is involved, rather than just skin, it's unlikely that any home remedy would help much.

Hi and welcome!

No, hemangioma do not appear past infancy, certainly not at five years old!

Could it be something else? Small blood blister? Scratch? Anything? Can you post a photo?

I have never heard of a link between calcium and vascular birthmarks, but I'd love to hear more and do some research.

Hi and welcome!

You should call your insurance company and make sure it's covered first. I'd hate to get surprised by a large bill from the hospital.
