Dear Sheri, Welcome to healthcareMagic!

Probably your son has a congenital angiomatous lesion-- most likely strawberry haemangioma. Still it cannot be diagnosed without a proper clinical examination. There are other possibilities also like portwine stain etc. You have not mentioned the site as well. Please get it examined by a Dermatologist. If it is a strawberry haemangioma, simple oral medications will be helpful. Wishing you & your babies best of health.
