This is from Linda, concerning beta blockers:

Use of Beta Blockers for treating Hemangiomas

We hear great things about the use of beta blockers for treating hemangiomas and know that some very prominent physicians are using BB but we have no clinical evidence of the long term outcomes on hemangiomas and until we see some studies that are large group, we can't take a position on it. But, we are hopeful that it will offer hope, especially for some of the treatment resistant lesions. The studies I have seen are very small, case by case. Only time will tell.
