Avatar f tn Just wondering if anyone has a baby with a nose hemangioma? My DD was born a month ago with a small mark on her nose tip. More alarmingly, though, was the shape of her nose- the nose tip looks like a huge bulb, which sounds like a compound hemangioma (my older DD also has hemangiomas, so I know by the look that this is probably what my younger DD has). Is there anyone out there with experience with a nose tip hemangioma? Did you get it lasered? At what age does it get worse?
Avatar n tn Hello, Strawberry mark or infantile hemangioma is a benign (non-cancerous) condition affecting cutaneous blood vessels. Mostly they improve or regress completely with time, so there is no need for specific treatment in most cases.

A hemangioma is a congenital benign tumour or vascular malformation of endothelial cells (the cells that line blood vessels).Females are more prone to get it. In children they mostly regress by adulthood. Mostly they improve or regress completely with time, so there is no need for specific treatment in most cases.
Avatar n tn YAG laser, intralesional coticosteroids, systemic steroids (if vision or the respiratory system are threatened) or, more recently, the topical immune response modifier, imiquimod (Aldara). Thinner hemangiomas respond best to treatment, so early therapy is generally best. Other drugs such as interferon or vincristine are sometimes considered if the corticosteroids do not work. If this fails, surgical removal often becomes necessary.
