Hi there! The above pictures belong to my daughter. She is now 16 months old. I thought I might mention that I also have a 5 year old that has a lip hemangioma that did require treatment. She was treated with steroids as a baby and just had surgery last week. My little one with the hand hemangioma had no treatment at all.
Our pediatrician when my 5 year old was a baby INSISTED that we leave her lip hemangioma alone and that it would go away. We took her to a specialist in Boston who had a different opinion and we decided to treat because of its location and the ulceration/pain that she had. The same specialist said the our baby's hand hemangioma would go away fine on its own mostly because of the location of it.
So what I'm trying to say is that our pedi was generally against treatment of any hemanioma, but the specialist had more specific knowledge of which ones to recommend treatment for and which to leave alone. So perhaps an opinion from a specialist (or one of the doctors on this website) would help to ease your concerns about the path you are taking. I have lots of pictures of my girls (and the progression of their hemangiomas) so feel free to email me and I can send them to you. email@example.com
