Question 9 month old Hemangioma on Back

Hi there, i am a mom of a 9 month old little girl who was born with a hemangioma on her back...we went 7 months without any complications, until it started to blister and then open up. It then got infected and we are now at the phase where we have finished antibotics, and are just about done the antibotic cream..My little girl shakes with pain when we have to change the gauze pads to reapply the cream. We are scheduled back to the Dermatologist in March but we see our family Dr on wednesday. Is there anyone out there with information or help for me, i feel so helpless and i feel so bad for her in this pain, which seems unnecessary!
Thanks again
Dawn

First and foremost, if the h is ulcerating and bleeding, you might want to consider seeing a vascualr specialist. not a dermatologist. let us know what area you are in and maybe we can help find one for you. My daughters h ulcerated when she was about 4 months and stayed that way for 4 months. we were finally introduced to a topical numbing cream called litacain. it worked wonders for the pain. you put it on before you apply creams and dressings. I know how stressful ulcerations can be on not just your baby but also parents. if you need any help or have any questions feel free to contact me. my website is below. hope this helps.

Default Homeopathy treatment

Hi, Homeopathy helped me. I am presently seeing a homeopathist and the one remedy that helped with many of the cysts and different types of growths i tend to produce in my body. The remdies may vary from one person to the next. I still have six hemangiomas on my liver. I was born with one and it never grew and never gave me any problems. Now that i am 40 , within a year i have six of them. My daughter is 3 since giveing birth to her i had one the same year and now the six. Ialso get severe swelling and bloating in my stomach and was wondering could this be related. For now i am going to continue with the homeopathy as it did cure my endometriosis i had for six years the Thuya remedy got rid of all my cysts. I will let you know if this path helps to get rid of my hemangiomas. After all it is an all natural approach. Good Luck i feel for, the unknown is scary. All the best to you and your family. I'm from Toronto, Ontario Canda

If you are interested in my homeopathy doctor let me know. I had a different one before but he moved away to another country. I've seen many amazing results from homeopathy. I hope it's ok to share this information online.
