Hi everyone, it's been a VERY (too long) time since I've been on here.
About 2 years ago, Dr's Waner and Levitin worked their magic on my Oldest daughter, Eva. She had a large Hemangioma on her face and now she is growing up, you can't even see the scar and days go by where i forget she even had it!

A week later:
2 Years Later (today)!:
As you can see, AMAZING results!!
Now fast forward to DD2:
Born 19 months apart, I had a second baby girl. Claire. She too, has a Hemangioma. This one is on her bottom, about the size of a half dollar, flat but puffy, and present from day 2 of birth. It has shown no complications, until now.
Claire's hemangioma is now Ulcerated, causing her immense pain. Here we go again! The battle begins. After much leaking of puss, blood, and goop from her ulcer, Dr's at the military hospital here in California say "it looks good" or "that's not bad". Easy for them to say, it's not their baby!
So I need some guidance. They prescribed a steroid that i'm not sure is so safe to use on an ugly ulcer that is causing my little one so much pain. For reference, the ulcer started the size of a pin-head, and is now the size of a nickel. It is getting deeper by the day, and has a foul odor. She has been prescribed with clobetasol propionate.(temovate). From what I'm reading, it's not supposed to be applied to a) children under 12 (dd is 1) and b) open sores. What gives?
