Hello,
Strawberry mark or infantile hemangioma is a benign (non-cancerous) condition affecting cutaneous blood vessels. Mostly they improve or regress completely with time, so there is no need for specific treatment in most cases. In some specific cases where treatment is require, the mode of treatment includes external compression therapy, topical steroids , topical antiseptics like Eosin, which also has antiangiogenic properties, high dose oral corticosteroids , propranolol, vascular laser therapy and medicines like vincristine and imiquimod .

I hope that helps. Take care and please do keep us posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
