My 6 weeks old Daughter is diagnosed with strawberry hemangioma. Was advised that it will grow bigger but regress in years to come. Nothing needs to be done. However, I am considering consulting a dermatologist but unsure what type of treatment will they suggest for a 6week old infant. Would appreciate to have a 3rd party view on this. Thanks
Thank you for your question. I’m sure as a parent, having something diagnosed on your child can be the most frustrating thing ever.
Your child is quite small at 6 weeks old, and depending on the size of the lump, most doctors will probably advice to monitor it at this stage.
At a later stage, if it doesn’t go away, there are always other treatment options like laser or a medication called propranolol.
But in summary, rest assured that if the diagnosis of strawberry hemangiona is correct, there are effective treatments for it.
