My dd is 7 weeks old and has a deep H (cashew sized) on her right eyebrow that was growing quite rapidly down onto her eyelid. It was growing so quickly that each morning it was significantly larger and more purple. So after seeing the opthomoligist we started Timolol 2 days ago. Our Dr. Suggested the topical first because my dd is so young, but he warned us that that it may not absorb through the skin enough to reduce the swelling. I do think though it has defiantly think the Timolol has slowed the growth if not halted it. I am very encouraged by what I have read here and what we have experienced so far.
