I then took her to a specialist who prescibed timilol. I was a against any other treatment because it wasn't in an area that was going to complicate things (eye, mouth, nose). The timilol stopped it pretty much from growing. I used timilol for 4 months, stopped. The H is fading, you can see graying in it. The dr said it is involuting. For reference, she turns 7 months next week. Her hair pretty much covers it. It bothered me in the beginning, now I don't really notice it...

Where are you located? How did you find the specialist?
