Question Sunscreen and hemangioma

My daughter has a hemangioma on her cheek. I am wondering if sun exposure is bad for the hemangioma in anyway? She is very fair, and I do put sunscreen on if were out. I am assuming it is okay to put the sunscreen on the hemangioma?

If it is not ulcerated or irritated in any way, yes, you would put sunscreen on.

Corinne says spf 50, and I would trust her on that.
