From birth I noticed these red spots I believe were due to trauma from my C-section. Both of my twin daughters have hemangiomas. Twin A having the largest one on her neck. Twin B never bothered her and are small enough to never cause concern. My daughter, Twin A, hemangioma on her neck began to ulcerate when she was 9 months old. Through our family doctor and now two different dermatologist it has started healing with starting propranolol and laser dye treatments. I’ve very thankful for the vascular birthmarks community for the knowledge on vascular birthmarks like hemangiomas and hope I can be of support to others.
