Strawberry hemangiomas are a collection of tiny capillaries that are typically located on the skin. Some are present at birth and others develop in the first few months of life. Hemangiomas have a tendency to get bigger over time, but most resolve without treatment by the time a child is 5 to 10 years.

If the hemangioma is very large or in a vulnerable location like the mouth or eye, it can be treated with a medication (propranolol) that hastens its resolution.
