Default 68 Year Old Treated at 6 Months with Radium

Hello. My hemangioma was treated with radium at age 6 months. It left a 3 inch by 4 inch area that gradually faded except for a central area of purple veins. It has always been extremely tender to touch and I keep it covered. Lately a small area is leaking a small amount of fluid. I am bothered by occasional stabbing and burning pain which especially bothers my sleep. Does anyone know if laser or other treatment might help. I don't think surgery would help. The skin is not normal and would likely require skin grafts. Thank you.
