In my opinion, it seems apparent that pediatricians need to be more aware of the possible complications of hemangiomas and be on the look out for them. Again and again I hear the same thing...that the ped. said leave it alone and then ulcerations happen and people come looking here for answers. I know many hemangiomas do go away on their own with no problems, but that doesn't mean they all do, so that's why I think VBF is so important..to educate people on what to look for. Sorry! I get fired up about this topic! It makes me sad to see little babies in pain!
