Question H Advice

Our 3 month old daughter has just been diagnosed as having a H on the end of her nose. We are concerned that when she feeds and sleeps she drags her hands over her nose constantly. Can this stimulate growth in the H or do we not need to worry about it. It has come as a huge shock to us. The H hasn't grown that rapidly over the last couple of months, but we fear it may. Are there any photographs of nose H's.
Finding this site has been great. A credit to everyone involved!!!

I don't believe her touching it actually stimulates growth. However, she could potentially scratch it. My daughter grabs her Hemangioma all the time, and I have to watch her to prevent her from hurting hurself by accident with her little nails. I clip her nails every other day but they grow overnight. That's all I could think of, but perhaps other moms have different insight.
