I think I replied to you via email, but so everyone can ready my reply;

Topicals have to this point been noted as not very helpful in the majority of cases, some do report they've seen some help with the topical steroid. HOWEVER, at 20 months old the h. has started involution and steroids in general are only going to help hemangiomas in the prolification phase.
