Scalp Hemangioma Ulcerating
My daughter is 8 months old and her quarter sized scalp H started ulcerating 3 weeks ago. It started out as just a tiny brown scab and I had no idea what it was. It is still quite small and I think on it's way to being healed. However, this morning, to my horror, a new spot on her H is starting to look dry and flaky. And I looked at it in proper daylight and I can almost see very slight brown patches in numerous places over the H. Does this mean more ulcerations are going to develop?!?
I have been keeping an Aquaphor-infused gauze on her H as treatment. Is there anything else I can do?
I attached two pictures. The first one is the ulceration at it's worst a few weeks ago, and the second is what it looks like today. You can't see the dry patch I talked about because I covered it with Aquaphor and my camera isn't that great.
I know the ulceration isn't that big but I really don't want it to get any bigger for fear of her having a bald spot. My poor baby girl :(
Hi and welcome!
Please visit http://birthmarks.org/experts.php and send that picture to one of our experts. I don't really think that is another uncertain...it might be a sign of involution. I just can't tell.

It looks to me like it could be involuting? Keep us posted on how the experts respond. Best wishes.
