Grayish color is often the staring of involution. YEAH.

Concerning is the black and yellowish you mentioned. This is likely the sign of an ulcer. The ulcers often appear during rapid growth phases in hemangiomas, but we've also had parents report ulcers appearing during the involution phase. Have you seen your doctor about the ulcerations? What type of medical evaluation has your child had up to this point?
