Hi Missy!

Thanks I will try that.

The doctor gave her an injection in 4 spots directly into the hemangioma. You can only imagine how that went! Then she is on a treatment of Metrogel twice a day, Renegrex once a day and 5% Lidocaine mixed with Aquaphor 4 times per day as needed. The lidocaine is the only way we can touch her to clean it out. All treatments are then to be covered with Triple Paste. She also suggested thin Duoderm especially if I know a poopy diaper is coming. I am going to try the duoderm tonight for the first time to see if it helps in keeping that away from the ulcer.

Laura
