This is probably is the most insignificant question to be posted on this board and might not be related to hemangioma. But I'm clueless to figure out who else to ask.
Our almost 12 year has lots of tiny 'pimples' at the front of her nose mainly where her hemangioma appeared when she was 10 days old. Her hemangioma was barely noticeable by kindergarten. We took her to a dermatologist last year the doctor said the hemangioma was done and the bumps were just acne and gave us a handful of sample tubes of adapalene gel. The gel seems to mostly burn the pimples and not really clear them and is violent on her normal skin. Other than the ones on her nose, she seldom gets them elsewhere. Does any one know if what they would be instead of prepubescent pimples? And if so, is there something more we should be doing about them than extremely strong acne medicine?
Thank you in advance,
What have you already tried? My suggestion would be to try something more mild on her face and if that didn't work out, then see another doctor. Although, this is a new issue to me....I'm not sure if it's related to the birthmark or not.
