Here is a poor rather picture of it (Right after the scab fell off so she was moving around a fair bit).

After a bath she rolled on it and the scab completely fell off causing a lot of pain. But the scab has now reformed.

We see the paediatricion in a couple of weeks for her 6 month checkup. Depending on what he says we will try and get a referral to Dr Tony Moore.

Are there any recommendations for bathing etc? Avoid getting it wet because of the scabbing?

I would not wait a couple of weeks. If you can get in quickly. Im not a doctor or anything, but when my daughters h began to ulcerate it did so very quickly and was very painful. Hers had a scab like your daughter, which eventually broke down and began draining. Make sure to keep it clean because they often get infected which causes even more pain.

UPDATE----

Her H has continued to scab in new places and the old scabs heal up and fluff away. We used some ointment that the derm prescribed to us for a few weeks and now we just let them heal on their own. So far...no pain.

They want to do an MRI and I am hesitant to do it but they want to make 100% sure it is not attached to the spine. I know it's better safe than sorry.

Jesse had both her hemangiomas removed last week. We used Dr Burns out of Medical City Childrens Dallas and they could not have made it easier!!! It was a day surgery and we were home after 3 hours!!

Don't let your pedi tell you that it will go away becuase they don't all go away. After talking to Dr Levetin in New York he encouraged me to get it removed. Pedi's don't have the time to be experts in all areas, even though they mean well.
