Default Newborn With Hemangioma Help Please

My granddaughter was born last Saturday and has these red spots over most of her body, she has 6 just on one arm and both ear canals are scarlet in colour. She has a cluster on the side of her face on the jaw line and the spots all differ in size. She was taken back into hospital the day she was born as she was having choking like episodes and making a whining sound. The doc treated her with IV antibiotics for 2 days and then on the 3rd day she was allowed home with an appointment to go back for a check in approx 6weeks and my son was told she has hemangioma. We do not know any more than that and we are obviously concerned and would welcome advice. Please help if you can.
Thanks Karen
