Hemangioma... hemangioma is a bright red birthmark that shows up at birth or in the first or second week of life. It looks like a rubbery bump and is made up of extra blood vessels in the skin. A hemangioma can occur anywhere on the body, but most commonly appears on the face, scalp, chest or back. It happens when a tangled group of blood vessels grows in or under a baby's skin. Infantile hemangiomas become visible in the first few days to weeks after a baby is born. Hemangiomas that are visible at birth are called congenital hemangiomas.

Its a typical case of haemangioma . If increasing in size . Then it needs treatment . Drug of choice propranolol. Start at a dose of 0.5 mg/kg/day can gradually hike the dose upto 2 mg/kg/day in two divided doses . Look for two side effects bradycardia and hypoglycaemia . Give it after feeds .

Suggestive of capillary haemangio ma, look for similar lesions elsewhere, if there's tendancy for bleeding advised sclerotherapy , cryo or laser treatment.
