I would think a dermatologist would be the best place to start with this. By the way, my 3 year old has a cafe au lait spot on the side of her face (in her hairline).

Hi Missy,
We tried to take a bunch of pics with our digital camera, and the close-ups were all too blurry. I really wish we could find a way to take a good picture of the H up close.

Hi Sherri,
Did you stop the application of the cream because it wasn't working or because there were contraindications? I really don't expect it to do anything, because the H has a deep component.
