Thank you so much for the suggestions. I just sent a question to Dr. Levitin. I also heard about Dr. Aaron Fay but didn't see his name on the list.

I am not 100% confident with the diagnosis either since my daughter was already 2 years and 5 months old when we found the tiny hard nodule under the skin. But the ophthalmologist said it now looked like a text-book deep hemangioma and could not be mistaken. I sent a picture to Dr. Levitin too. There are adult-type hemangioma too I think. But she is too young for that too. Anyway, it is a very atypical case. Now I think I really need to see a hemangioma specialist.

More comments will be appreciated. I will update and share when I find out more too.

Here is a picture of today.

And a picture 3 months ago.
