Strawberry marks: are usually varieties of capillary hemangiomas. These vascular lesions are generally present at birth, enlarge for several months, then regress up until approximately two years of age. Persistence of these lesions beyond early childhood are sometimes addressed with laser or other treatments. A dermatologist can help you sort this out.
