My daughter had a Hemangioma on her left eyelid and we took her to a pediatric opthamologist who was dead set against surgery. Instead he recommended an oral steroid (6 ml of Prednisolone daily) and within the first 24 hours we noticed a drastic improvement. It has been 2 months now and the Hemangioma is 99.999999% gone, plus we get to ween her off the steroids in February. For those who haven't tried an oral steroid, please DO give it a shot - it has an 86% success rate and has proven miraculous in our case. My best wishes to all.
