Strawberry Hemangioma

A strawberry nevus (hemangioma) is a red birthmark,commonly occurring in young children and infants. This red tinge of skin comes from a collection of blood vessels close to the skin’s surface. Though it’s called a birthmark, a strawberry nevus can appear when a child is several weeks old. There are rare cases of several family members having hemangiomas in which genetics is assumed to play a role.However, the exact cause is still unknown. They’re usually harmless and typically fade by the time a child reaches age 10.If it doesn’t fade, removal options like oral and injected medication, laser and surgery are available to minimize the birthmark’s appearance.
