HI there...I feel so bad for what you are going through. My daughter has an upper lip hemangioma too. Her doc never offered a steroid injection but went straight to oral steroids..this was 6 years ago before propanolol was readily used. I'm not sure if either of these medications are an option for you since every hemangioma is different. But I would say if you are not happy with how things are going, it would be good to second opinion at this point.
