Hi everyone, Sophie has been on propranolol (1.5mg/kg) for about 5 months now. She is just over 7 months old. Her H has flattened a couple of times over the last few months but also puffed up again. Now it has just flattened again but has some scabbing....not black but burgundy red. It doesn't really look worrying but I have been reading about ulceration and getting worried especially because we are going to Fiji in a couple of weeks for a week's holiday. Do you think this is ulceration beginning?? I will post a pic.
