I was concerned as well. In addition to my daughter's hemangioma she also has a tethered spinal cord and bladder exstrophy, so she will be having several surgeries and is also on amoxicillin prophylaxis to prevent UTIs. We didn't have an option, it had to be treated because of it's location and size, but having her on the medicine has been easy. She hasn't had any side effects and the hemangioma is shrinking quickly. I wouldn't be apprehensive about it, I haven't found it to be a big deal at all, and it is very common now!
