My 5 months old daughter has hemangioma on her left eyelid. Please suggest treatment for her.

Eyelid hemangioma: Most hemangiomas do not require treatment - they grow and then shrink on their own. Eyelid ones are an exception though, because as they grow it can obstruct vision and cause problems with visual development in the infant. I would advise a consultation with a pediatric dermatologist and ophthalmologist. Most likely systemic therapy with Propranolol would be indicated in this situation. ...Read more

Hemangiomas of bone do not cause raised skin lesions. ...Read more

Why does my daughter have such large veins across her face leading to the hemangioma under her eye. Could it be fighting against the treatment?

Possibly: Hemangiomas are irregular collections of blood vessels, in this case beneath the skin. Warmth or redness of skin may be a sign of infection or inflammation. While steroids are used to reduce inflammation, they can increase risk of infection. In addition, steroids can thin in the lining of certain tissues and blood vessels, increasing the risk of bleeding in the setting of trauma. ...Read more
