Hello, Rohinsa Manalu Icha, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hemangiomas are red, spongy bumps on the skin caused by the dilation of blood vessels on the surface of the skin. This often occurs in premature babies, girls, and children who have a similar family history. Hemangiomas are often benign, painless, and often go away on their own as the child grows older. However, if the hemangioma becomes enlarged, disruptive to appearance, and annoying then there are several therapies offered to get rid of it.
The doctor will perform a physical examination of the lump and if necessary will perform a bolster examination such as a Doppler ultrasound to ensure blood flow in the area and to distinguish it from diseases that have similar symptoms, such as measles, rubella, or acrodermatitis. You can consult a general surgeon or a pediatric surgeon for this problem. Therapy that can be offered by doctors is by drugs or by surgery.
If the hemangioma enlarges, causes infection (signs: fever, pain, pus), bleeding, cuts, or interferes with organ function (depending on the location, for example near the eye it will interfere with vision, the head will interfere with sleeping comfort, etc.) consult a doctor.
It is better if the lump should not be touched, scratched, squeezed, especially with unwashed hands. Keep clean around the bumps to prevent infection.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
