My 9 month old has an ulcered hemangioma in her diaper area too. The pain she is going through is undescribable. I'm still in the process of getting her treated. To "protect" the area I have been told to use a Nexcare spray (liquid bandage). I see that it is protecting well, but not subsiding the pain at all.

I've been told our next step may be to use a steroid orally. Any effects or cautions I should be aware of? Any long term effects?
