when my baby's hemangioma started growing, it also started ulcerating, it wasn't bad, but it looked like it itched a lot because my daughter scratched it all the time, I tried 3 or 4 different creams that her derm. gave me and nothing worked, sometimes it bled, so I changed derm and the new one prescribed hydrocortisone ointment... it was wonderful in 10 days it stop ulcerating. Now her hemangioma is just flat
