I am new to this site, so please bear with me. My daughter, Adriana has just turned 2 years old. She has a H on her cheeck and on her head. I have been advised to wait and see with no other options given apart from giving her propanolol. I am very worried that this is not going to work and dont want to take the risk, because the H has grown and is at a steady point. The only worry now is that its not showing any signs of regression and the one on her head seems to have gotten bigger! I have been to Great Ormond street but they keep giving me cream to apply to her skin! I have requested to see a surgeon to assess her to see if she is a candidate for excision. I wanted to ask your advice really to find out where in the Uk i can have surgery to remove the H, it has completely distorted her gums and her teeth are not growing properly. Please help.
I'm curious as to why you don't want to do the propanolol? What risks have you heard about?
