Hello. I am 22 years old and recently asked my doctor about a small red spot on my forehead. He said it was a hemangioma. I'm 95% sure I have another one on my leg.
What does this tell you? (i.e. Is there an underlying cause?) Thank you.

Hi. I just read the post below. Re: my first mesg: In other words, do you have any recommendations on this?
I also have some acne exclusively on the lower half of my face (i.e. mostly on my mouth/chin--my forehead is as clear as can be). Thanks a lot.

Read the note I put on the BB about hemangiomas yesterday. To know which kind you have I would have to see it. You can go to the library & ask the reference livbrarian for a dermatological atlas in color. Look up hemangiomas & you will be able to make your own diagnosis. The only one that I know of that has anything to do with metabolism is the capillary hemangioma. All the rest are congenital to my knowledge. That does not mean that they will not eventually be seen to be associated with genetic susceptibility AGGRAVATED by something metabolic that CAN be dealt with.
In the meantime, go to the archives for this BB and read everything you can find about acne, accutane & accutane side effects (since much of what is written is under that subject).
THEN, if you still have questions, write again.

Walt, thank you for your reply. The reason I mentioned my acne was only to ask if you felt acne in certain locations indicated one thing as opposed to something else. In other words, does the fact that I never get pimples on my forehead by have quite a problem near my mouth and chin, and a slight problem on my nose mean anything to you or is this information also in archived posts?
Thanks a lot.

Not to me. However, a good homeopath would probably know better.
