Hi and welcome!

If you can't get a photo to upload, email it to contact@birthmark.org and I'll put it up for you tomorrow.

Hi! It sounds like what you are describing might not be a hemangioma...usually they start to disappear around 1 year of age and don't usually cause pain, etc. at that age. Have you see a vascular birthmark specialist recently?

Hi! If I were you I would get checked by a specialist to ensure you have a proper diagnosis and also to see if there's anything can be done to help with the pain. Where are you located? Have you seen a specialist before?
