My 5 week old baby has a scalp hemangioma that is growing quite quickly. We saw a ped. dermatologist today who was wonderful. He just wants to watch the growth for now (it is about 1.5 cm at this time) and also prescribed some topical steroidal cream. He did not think that the cream would do a whole lot, but may slow the growth. Does anyone have any experience with the steroidal creams????
By the way, I used to post on this board when my last child was diagnosed with a forehead H. Kind of weird to have two children in a row with a hemangioma! I have to say though, that they are both really healthy, and when all is said and done, if this is the worst health issue I have to deal with, I will be a lucky Mom!
