Here is a link to the facebook album of my daughter's hemangioma if anyone is interested in the progress, birth to 5 1/2 years old.
(hopefully it will link correctly)
Hers was "superficial" and so the pediatric dermatologist, who specialized in "general pediatric dermatology, management of port wine stains and hemangiomas, and genetic skin disorders", recommended that we watch and wait until she was in kindergarten. At that point, if it was interferring with her writing, or activity, or just visually upsetting to her, then we could work out a treatment plan. Looking at her hand, I would not have thought it was superficial, I would recommend seeing a specialist before starting any medication on a baby/toddler. She loves her hemangioma and wishes it was still pinker. Truthfully, I miss it too. I realized as a first time mom how fierce my love was for this little baby through this experience and it grew my compassion for other moms.
In terms of things we did for her little hand, we made sure caregivers were aware of it, and that if it was cut it might bleed more than a normal cut. It only had one cut, which healed just fine. It was never an issue, despite how red and puffy it looked in the beginning - you'll see in the photos. When in the sun, if I was concerned for sun burn enough to put on a hat or sunscreen then I also put sunscreen on her hemangioma (I like babdyganics, definitely something without "benzones" in it, in my opinion). Lastly, the MD said not to worry if she was sucking on her hand/fingers unless the hand was getting too soggy and it was causing any sort of additional rash/sore - we never had a problem though she stopped that habbit once the first few teeth came in.
I'm happy to answer any other questions, sorry that I don't check in here much anymore. Try me on facebook through that link. Best wishes to you all.
