Yes yes yes...follow your instincts...I would strongly urge you to go see a specialist, particularly one that has experience with Hemangiomas. Try the Find of Physician link above to find a doc in your area, or post your location and ask for advice. There are a handful of wonderful doctors out there that are willing to treat these...treatment early is critical...it will save you from dealing with further damage to the skin/lip...etc.

Good luck.
