Default Hemangioma Peeling - does this mean anything?

My daughter has a hemangioma on her scalp and it is now peeling....does this mean anything or is this just the nature of hemangiomas? It's not super dry or ulcerating, it's just peeling slightly.

Thanks!

Sarah

I have heard of this and I don't think it is uncommon. Others will add their experiences soon. Is it bothersome to her? Does she pick or pull at it?

Thanks Missy! It's not a bother to her at all and it's not peeling a lot, just a bit and it's only on the hemangioma, not the surrounding skin.
