Hemangioma Peeling - does this mean anything?
My daughter has a hemangioma on her scalp and it is now peeling....does this mean anything or is this just the nature of hemangiomas? It's not super dry or ulcerating, it's just peeling slightly.

I have heard of this and I don't think it is uncommon. Others will add their experiences soon. Is it bothersome to her? Does she pick or pull at it?

Thanks Missy! It's not a bother to her at all and it's not peeling a lot, just a bit and it's only on the hemangioma, not the surrounding skin.
