I am the mother of a beautiful little girl named Delaney. She was born with 2 hemangiomas on her right and left leg. Since birth the number of hemangiomas has increased to 9. We saw a ped. derm and were prescribed topical propranolol. Has anyone had any luck with this drug? As of now, most of hers are flatter in nature. She has follow up medical testing due to the number of them in the upcoming weeks.

Hi and welcome!

Other parents will come along soon. There are a few here who have used timolol.

Hiya! I have a delaney too!! Her H is right under her right eye. We tried timolol briefly but the location of her H required more aggressive treatment since it was beginning to affect her eyesight. She is 5 months old. Started propranolol at 3 months and have seen a tremendous difference in the 2 months she has been on it!
