Walt,

Where are you located? All of the docs in Cincinnati have said to leave it alone. Dr. Levitin and Waner suggested surgery. I have an appt this week with a pediatric dermatologist in N. kentucky and am hoping for some kind of treatment (Laser, Timolol or something). I think I will give it until she is 1 to decide on surgery. I'm wondering why the clinic here in Cincy doesn't really treat? My cousin's little girl is two months old with a large H on her scalp and they won't treat her either. It has ulcerated and is growing rapidly. this is very frustrating. I think doctors are still scared to really treat.

do you have any pics of your daughter?
Thanks!
Anne
