What a beautiful boy you have!
Our daughter has had an ulcer since july :-(
I donīt have any suggestions for you other than keep an eye of any eventual infections. She has had two rounds of penicillin so far.

About the grey in the middle, our doctor here in Sweden says that it could involute in the middle, but as long as the edges are red, the hemangioma is still active. Is it warm? It is also active as long as it is warm according to her.

I keep my fingers for your boy that he will not have a big ulcer!!!!

i believe it is becoming ulcerated, only because my daughter's H on her head started out looking just like that, around 8-10 weeks of age, and continued scabbing, bleeding, etc. until it became infected....i HOPE it isnt and its just involuting, but wanted to share my thoughts/experiences with you as well.....

Good Luck!

sorry about starting this thread and not providing an update. the H that looked like it was ulcerating did indeed ulcerate . it's causing quite a bit of pain for our baby and we're doing everything to keep it clean and get it better as quickly as possible. the H that looked like it might be involuting actually started to ulcerate as well. it's in the early stages of ulceration and we're trying to keep it clean.

we saw dr. reinisch yesterday and since our baby is in so much pain from the ulcerations, we are going to have them surgically removed. it's kind of scary but i think it's the best decision.

thanks for all your imput!

I read what you had posted and am going through EXACTLY what you are. my daughter was born with a "H" on her face near her ear. It is a little bit bigger than a dime. I too started to see it turn black, then kinda drying out and peeling. I got so excited thinking it was involuting, but then realized it was ulcerating. What kind of treatment has your son gotten if any yet? We are going to see a specialist in a week, I just feel SO helpless watching this happen to such a small child. She now is acting like it hurts whenever it rubs anything. Any info would be appreciated. Good luck to your son, it really helps to realize that you aren't the only one out there!
