I actually think you should wait and see. My daughter also has a strawberry hemangioma near her eye (it's right on her eyebrow). Hers also had a deep hemangioma that actually grew much bigger than the strawberry. The deep hemangioma grew for about 6 months to about the size of a nickel (maybe bigger). Her pediatrician wanted to wait and see but I was so nervous it would interfere with her eye (it did come very close but never interfered). She is now 18 months and the deep hemangioma is gone and the strawberry is going away as well. I am so glad that we waited to see what it would do and we haven't had to give her any drugs. We barely notice it and I almost never get comments like I did before. I think it is harder on us than it is on them when they are this young.
