Post daughter with nasal tip H

Hi my name is Catherine, I am new to the site. I had twin girls on new years during my 31 week of pregnancy. about 5 weeks ago I noticed one of my daughters had a red dot on her nose. Her pediatrician said it was a hemangioma. in 3 weeks it has grown to the size of a grape. we brought her to the dermatologist and he said it was a mixed H, superficial and deep. The dermatologist has started her on oral steroids and is concerned at how quick it grew and is leaving the option for surgery open if the steroids dont work. any info about nasal tip hemangionas would be very helpful. thank you

Catherine
