A hemangioma (or angioma) is a small non-cancerous overgrowth of blood vessels in the skin.

They occur in up to 10% of infants and can occur in adults as well.

The Strawberry hemangioma, or Capillary Naevus, is more common in premature babies.

The hemangioma may appear when the baby is a few days or weeks old and rapidly grow over a few months.

The eventual size varies from a tiny dot to several centimeters in diameter.

Occasionally hemangiomas bleed or ulcerate.
