Hi, sorry I havent been back to reply, I have been working away.
My daughter had great results using Propranolol at the age of 5, to be honest I think our Consultant didn't really expect it to do much.

The difference was so great that we were able to go for surgery now that the H had involuted so much. The operation was last week and she had her stitches removed this morning.

We are enormously happy with the results, and to be honest it all comes from trying the Proranolol.

Brian I actually commented about reading your information on this site when I went to her dermatolgoist a couple of weeks ago and about the you tube video regarding Gloriika.(Both of them them gave me some hope) I told her i just wanted to try it if it was safe medicine. She did comment today that they weren't sure if it would help because she was older and it was no longer growing. Keeping my fingers crossed that we will have some of the same success that you had.

my daughter (19 mos) had a forehead H a little lower and a little bigger than this...we elected to have surgery when she was 12 mos and for us it was the best decision. scar practically invisible 7 months is just below her hairline, and i even decided to grow out her bangs as there's nothing to hide anymore. here are some pictures, including right before and right after surgery. most recent is i think in june, so 6 months post op.
