Prednisolone is an oral steroid. We were offered either Prednisone or Prednisolone - and the only reason we went with Prednisolone is Madeline's pediatrician said it tasted slightly better. Honestly after just one day we noticed an improvement, and within a month, the hemangioma completely disappeared. Oral steroids have an 86% success rate - it's worth trying. Madeline is now 9 months old and weighs 19.5 pounds (26 inches long). She gets a lot of comments about her chubby face, which I think is completely out of line, by the way. I used to hurry up and explain she is on a steroid, but after a while, I would just smile and say, "Yes, she is a healthy baby." Madeline has been compleltely off the steroids for about 3 weeks, and I have noticed her face is slimming out some. Her cute dimples are returning! I have had difficulties trying to post pics on this site before, but if you would like me to send you before and after pics to your email, just let me know the address.
