Hi and welcome,

If you will send your photo as an attachment to I will resize it and add it to this thread.

Everyone's baby's hemangiomas look different. Many start out as a flat, tiny, red mark. Then parents go to Google and find the most extreme images (and there are some extreme ones out there, even on our site). Then they panic.

So, don't panic. A good number of hemangiomas require no treatment. Even more require minimal treatment.

Hang in there!
