Meg, I'm in the Albany, NY area. I could have written your post. My 3 month old daughter has a hemangioma in her diaper area as well. She had it at birth and both the pediatrician in the hospital at birth and her regular pediatrician said to just watch it. It has started growing and now I believe it is ulcerating as there are areas that bleed occasionally when I change her. I found your post while searching for more information and just had to reply seeing as you're in my area. As far as doctors I'm planning on contacting a pediatric dermatologist if I can find one in the area. I am completely with you on the overwhelming feeling.
