Unfortunately not all pediatricians have enough experience with hemangiomas to know what h. will fade without issue and which can leave residual issues or even serious damage. Please do have Missy post a picture or you can email to me. If you do email me, remind me of her age and the changes you see. It might be necessary to look for a new primary care physician that will listen to your concerns and realize that not all h. are as simple as "going away on it's own".
