Default New here... 3 month old with compound hemangioma, and questions


My daughter has a compound hemangioma on her scalp. It has recently grayed a bit and is flaky. The graying made me excited that it may have stopped growing. Is that possible at 3 months? Also, should I be concerned about it getting flaky? It has never bled so I don't think it is ulcerating.

If it is involuting, I am curious about the timetable. Months? Years? Do compounds fully go away?
