Yes, we've had many parents that ended up having laser tx. for stubborn ulcerations especially in the diaper area over the years. It really is a quick procedure and the results have been very good for healing the ulcers. My son had a small ulcer on his ear... small put painful! It was so hard to dress him... getting anywhere near his ear with clothing felt like I was killing him. One zap with laser and it was gone. I can't even see the area where it was... ulcers tend to scar... but the laser sure helped.
