Post lower lip hemangioma

my daughter is 4 months old and has been on prednisone for about a month now. It worked great for the first 2 weeks and we keep uping the dose but it doesn't seem to be shrinking any longer. The ulceration has healed and is not causing eating problems any longer. THe dr. mentioned viscristine the last time we went in but the pediatrician said to stay away. Anyone have any experience with this? I am scared to put her on this since she is so little. The say the H will go away and shrink on its own. It is the whole bottom lip and goes into her gums.
