Here Goes the Strawberry

There are several ways of treating strawberry naevus and this include oral medication such as beta-blocker (propanolol) or steroid. However, the most effective and most commonly used method is with injection of steroid into the mass. I injected 2 ml of a combination of two different steroids (one long-acting and one short-acting) in equal amount for this baby girl. The mass shrank dramatically in just 2 weeks.
