Hemangioma is s collection of blood vessels which is present since birth n grows in size n does not require any medicines.if it grows v large as the child grows n is cosmetically not acceptable then u shud visit a cosmetic surgeon. Otherwise it is to b left alone.also if ther is drastic increase in size n pain or pressure symptoms then it is of concern n shud c a surgeon
