i have not heard of any other children with it there and want to know if this is unusual and what will happen if it does not go away?

Current Post: Since I posted last, I had a baby. The only complications that I have had is basically swelling or rashes. Also mole growth. Turns out I had a mole on the birth mark this whole time, and it had grown 8 times the original size. I had to have it removed with many of my other moles once given birth due to engorgement. Otherwise, no complications.

My Last Post: I have one on the outside of my who-ha. When I was little it was always inflamed even with a little bit of moister. This made potty training for my mother easy since I found it the most uncomfortable situation ever. When I got older, it didn't go away, but it wasn't quite as inflamed and noticeable. On days where I'm in a bathing suit or sweating a whole lot, I'll end up with it inflamed and with a rash that goes on the leg in the inside of my leg. It hurts extremely, and I usually put on some kind of baby rash creme and it usually helps. I really haven't had any side affects from any of my relationships, including my boyfriend of five years. If I hadn't said anything, especially when I've had rashes from heat, he said he would have never guessed or thought something was different.

Thank God I saw this thread. My daughter also has strawberry hemangioma on the left lip of her vagina. It appeared days after she was born, as she grows it became sore. Doctors said it's common to babies born small. At 2months it started bleeding lightly,few days later she didn't stop crying until I saw a big hole at the lower portion of her genitals. Rushed her to the doctor and found out that it grew a puss and it popped causing extreme pain. It was a nightmare bec she was very small and fragile. I don't want her to go thru that pain again. We used boiled guava leaves to clean the open wound and for faster healing. Since then,we've been vigilant changing her diapers putting creams and making sure it's not too dry and not too moist. hemangioma seems to be diminishing but I really hope the whole thing goes away without surgery. Now trying grapeseed oil (oral and direct to skin) and crossing my fingers. Looking for another doctor as well for 2nd opinion.

My daughter was born and then at about 3 weeks old her hemangiomas started showing up. She ended up with 6 and now she only has 3 left and she is 4 years old now. The one on her neck was the biggest but I guess from milk getting on her neck when she was a baby it caused it to become ulcerated and was VERY painful for her so we were sent to a dermatologist and they did all kinds of tests and they ended up putting her on a certain type of blood pressure medicine so she had to be seen about every 3-4 weeks and she was on the medicine for about 6 months. It helped so much and caused the hemangioma to decrease in size and also it flattened out and wasn't raised anymore. My daughter also has one on her left vagina lip and its still the same size and raised and she just now complained of it today saying that it stings when she pee's.

My daughter has a hemangioma on right outer vagina lip but it spreads to the crease of her leg and all the way down her right butt cheek including her anal opening. Everytime she poops she screams in pain. It's a constant battle to keep it from being moist or to dry there's never a n inbetween. I'm so tired of seeing her in pain it's killing me. The pediatrician is sending her to a dermatologist. Are they going to be able to help or do I need to take her to a vascular doctor.

My daughter, who's now almost 5, was born with one which covered her right outer labia. It was a nightmare. It would easily get sores on it with needed dressing (worst place for dressing) which of course needed constant checking and changing. She'd scream from pain all the time. It didn't help that as she grew, it grew too. It ended up about 5cms long and 2-3cms wide (that's now). When she was about 6 months or so, the GP referred me to a specialist team who put her on liquid Propranolol. It didn't go away completely but it's now got a lot of normal pigment instead of the nasty red, so the medical did get rid of a lot of blood vessels for it. It does only with kids up 3 or 4 years so, if anyone has a baby with one, get them on Propranolol, and stick with it. I only had my girl on it for about 18mths to 2 years. She still has some issues with it, but luckily no pain or sores forming.

I was born with a strawberry hemangioma on the outer vaginal lip. My Mother said that within weeks she went to change my diaper and it had begun to bleed. She took me to the doctor and after consulting with a few other doctors, he decided to use liquid nitrogen to cauterize it. It worked, not only did the bleeding stop but after a few weeks the whole hemangioma had disappeared. I was left with a small scar . Of course that was over 40 years ago,but I thought I would share. Never heard of anyone else having one in that particular area..
