My son (2.5 years old ) has an hemangioma since birth. At first was hardly seened but now it starts to make his finger movements difficult. It also very painfull when the weather change. Can you please help us? We don't now how to face it. Which treatment to use? Thank you in advance for your replies.
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?
