Hemangiomas look similar to a birthmark and usually do not cause harm or pain.
From the picture shown your infant may have hemangiomas also known as red spots that appear at birth. However, without physically seeing your child it is difficult to accurately determine her condition. Hemangiomas look similar to a birthmark and usually do not cause harm or pain. Red spots commonly appear on infants’ head and neck area, similar to what you have shown. Infant hemangiomas typically fade over time; however, it’s important to have your child evaluated by a board certified dermatologist who is experienced in diagnosing and treating infant skin conditions to determine the skin condition and available treatments.
