Hello... My son Stephen JR is about to be 10 months at the end of this month. I have been looking online for a forum about hemangiomas and Iím SO happy to find one!!!!! My son Stephen has a H Strawberry birthmark on face his upper left lip and by his nose. He has gone for treatment (laser/ steroids injections) ever since he was 3 months old. I noticed the birthmark on his face about 4 days after he was born. It looked like a little scratch and by time he was 2 months it kept growing and growing. Now that he has had 3 treatments they seem to have the growth of it under control. I was suppose to go to another treatment this Thursday but they cancelled it because he had a fever yesterday =( Anyways. Iím glad to introduce myself and I canít wait to talk to other families that go though the same thing as me!!!!!!!
9Months after 3 treatments.. not to sure how many more =)
Hi! My daughter is going to be seeing Dr. Stelnicki for a hemangioma on her ear. We are driving from Central Florida. Can you tell me a little about the office, what to expect? We are going to the Boynton Beach office. If it violates any rules to post, I can be PM'ed.
