It's a personal decision but I did a lot of research and when I learned that 50% of these go away by age 5 and 90% by age 9 I decided that was too long to wait due to teasing, etc. You can have these removed by a plastic surgeon or can "wait and see". (The other marks I am not sure about, but the scalp one looks clear cut to me.)
Also I believe that some doctors say that if your child has 4 or more hemangiomas (assuming the other 3 are) that they are supposed to have an MRI to be sure they don't have internal hemangiomas for ex. on the liver. I would look into that just to be safe.
Thank you for your input. She only has 3, maybe you are thinking 4 because I posted 2 of the one on her hand. That is a scary thought though. I'll have to look into that a little more.
