Treatment For Red Birthmarks (hemangiomas)?
Hello Sarif, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
Hemangiomas are basically benign blood vessel tumors that can be seen on a baby's skin. This condition is not dangerous and in most cases do not require any therapy because this hemangioma will disappear by itself. In the first year of a child's life, this hemangioma can indeed be seen growing bigger. After one year the growth will stop and the hemangioma will start to shrink by itself. At the age of 5 years, most hemangiomas have shrunk, leaving only the skin color that is different from the surrounding skin. Therapy for hemangiomas is only given in certain conditions such as hemangiomas interfere with vision and breathing. If there are no specific severe symptoms that occur due to hemangiomas, therapy will usually not be given.
If your child's hemangioma bleeds, you can press the bleeding part with clean gauze for 10-15 minutes until the bleeding stops on its own. If the bleeding does not stop, you can take your child to the pediatrician for further treatment. You should not touch / touch the hemangioma lesions in your child's neck. You also need to be more careful when bathing a child or putting on clothes so that the hemangioma is not rubbed and bleeds. You can also apply a moisturizer to the hemangioma area to prevent the overlying skin from becoming dry and bleed easily. Make sure you choose a fragrance-free and gentle moisturizer for baby's skin.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
