I have 3 out of 4 with hemangiomas but I guess it's not supposed to run in families. They are most common with light-skinned children, girls and preemies and I have all 3, so our doctor attributes it more to that than to the fact they are all sisters. My oldest doesn't have one. My 5 year old has a lip hemangioma. She has had oral steroid treatment as well as surgery and now laser. One of my twin 2 year olds has a pretty extensive one on her hand and it's going away on its own. Her twin sister has a small superficial one on her arm. We got the 3 our 4 special!
