Jenni,

Keep us posted on how the Timolol is doing. I would also recommend that if you continue to see growth to contact your doctor right away and share your concern. I would also recommend getting opinions from our ask the expert physicians on other options that might be plan B. Hemangiomas are very common, so many pediatric derms see them very often, but the treatment plans have really advanced over the last couple of years and it really is a good idea to hear from the specialists that keep up on new protocols for treatment.
