My daughter has a hemangioma on her lower left lip. We are seeing a dermatologist that specializes in hemangiomas. Our pediatrician referred us to her after Taryn's lip got an ulcer. From what our doctor said is that the first four months is the rapid growth phase for the hemangioma. We were also told that it should be done growing around 10 months. Because it was causing her pain because of its rapid growth she is on a cortisone steroid.
