My daughter had laser treatment for her ulcerated hemangioma on her left butt cheek in 2009. She received 4 or 5 treatments every two weeks. It kept the wound clean and allowed it to heal faster. We used mepilex which is a waterproof bandage that worked well. The only other thing we put on it was vaseline. She has a scar from the ulcer & laser, but I believe we made the best decision for her at the time. We were thankful to not have to put her on medication. She still has her hemangioma and it is SLOWLY fading. She turned 2 yesterday! Laser is a great option for ulcers. We did have to drive to over 4 hours for her treatments.
