With everything falling into the umbrella of "birthmarks", what type are you dealing with?

I am actually not sure... My 8 month old DD was born with a reddish patch about the size of a dime on her right shoulder. At birth her pediatrician was sure it would dissapear. Instead the birthmark has grown with her and is now the size of a quater although the shape hasn't changed. It is normally a dark pink, but when she is getting mad that spot turns bright red! :smileyvery-happy: So I really haven't been able to tell if it is technically a salmon patch or a port wine stain.

I have a 6 month old beautiful girl who has 3 hemagiomas. One is on her head in her hairline so you don't see it really at all. It is getting slightly bigger and "puffy". She has one on her right upper chest that

Thanks for the reply! We started with the steroids and didn't see much success. To tell you the truth I don't see much with the timolol either. You are right in that it is just in a hard place to keep medicine on.

I'm glad to hear the H isn't growing much.

Sorry I haven't been on here in a while. We are seeing one dermatologist for the hemagiomas not a team. She has seen and treated many hemagiomas before but I am not sure one like Esme has.
