Hi Ladies,

I am in Australia and we have seen a Peadiatric Dermatologist in our childrens hospital and started Propanolol treatment for our daughter a month ago. She has a strawberry H covering her nose and spreading towards her eyes hence the need for treatment at 2 weeks of age. We have since in that month seen a 2mm shrink from edge to edge and a substantial amount of regression under her nose. We see new "patches" of regression every few days that start as a small dot and then regress further. We have been told she will be on propanolol for at least 6 months but whilst the results can be slow every time family members see her they can see a huge difference which is comforting.

Glad others are having success as well ..
