Rarely a problem: A true "strawberry" mark is expected to grow faster than a kid does up to ~10m, when it slows. Unless it is in a worrisome place like an eyelid or nose, we usually leave them alone. Most will shrink by age 4 and never require any special treatment. There are exceptions, which your doc can sort out if needed.
