My son was born with a hemangioma on his nose. I noticed it as soon as he was born. When he was about 4 mos old he started the propranolol treatment. For awhile there wasn't much change as the propranolol was preventing it from growing. But as time passed his hemangioma is hardly noticeable and we are preparing to take him off the propranolol. He is now 18 mos. I would recommend the propranolol. My son had no side effects and took the medicine easily. Just remember as my doctors always reminded me that hemangiomas on the nose seem to take the longest to go away. Good luck.
