Ulcerated Diaper Area Hamangioma
My 3 month old daughter was born with three hemangiomas: one on her back, one on her toe (goes between the toes and onto the back of her foot) and the third is on her inner labia. The toe area ulcerated and became infected- we've been treating it with Burrow's solution and Bactroban for almost a week. It has started to heal. However, the hemangioma on the inner labia has now ulcerated and causes great pain when she goes to the bathroom or comes in contact with water. My doctor advised us today to create a sitz bath with the Burrow's solution and to use the same ointment there also. I have been using the ointment for 3 days with no improvement and will start the sitz baths tonight.
I hate seeing my little girl in so much pain and am looking for support of other moms who have the same story. In researching diaper area hemangiomas I've not found many stories where the hemangioma is on the inner labia. I think that causes a unique set of problems since it is right in the midst of such sensitive skin and such.
