Our daughter is on Propranolol for her nasal tip hemangioma and it has helped hugely. She hasn't had any side effects and our original huge worries about her birthmark have now just turned into having to give her the medication with a syringe three times a day (usually quite easy between sips of milk).

I don't have experience of steroid treatment but have heard side effects can be pretty severe. It does sound though like the current treatment your child is having is working, but if I were you I'd still seriously consider moving over to Propranolol.
