Has anyone used propranolol for treating hemangioma?


My kid's dermatologist just offered us to use propranolol to shrink the hemangioma and make the bump flatter. My kid is 16 months old and her hemangioma is compound strawberry and it is on her forehead. Has anyone have any experience of taking that? How long does it take to see the result? Have you experienced any side-effects? As Dr. said the hemangioma has stopped growing and it may start shrinking on its own. But we want to consider the option of medication as well. Thanks in advance for your help.

Most hemangiomas are just left alone since they often shrink without any intervention. Steroids are usually the medication of choice, although surgery and laser can help. Propranolol is used for severe hemangiomas. Since what your baby has is more of a superficial one, then I don't think you would need it, especially at this young age. Most hemangiomas go away in a few weeks to months.

You may also want to ask a second opinion from another doctor on the right treatment.  (+ info)

Anyone out there have a child with hemangioma?


My daughter is 8 months old and has hemangioma on her lip and I have had so many options on what to do and I would like to hear from anyone who has been through this before.

The options I have been given are steroids, plastic surgery, or leaving it alone and it might go away.

Only serious answers please. And thanks ahead of time.
The place has quit growing and has actually started to fill in with her skin color. It has got any bigger since October of last year.
----------

My daughter's hemangioma started when she was 3 weeks old. Hers was on her left cheek and partially over her neck coinciding with strawberry marks over her face, neck and ear. She seen a pediatric surgeon and because of where her's was positioned surgery wasn't a very good option. She would have been paralyzed on that side of the face. It grew until she was around 18 months old ( got quite large!!) , then it stopped! Her specialist said it would shrink and that it would be unnoticeable by the time she started school. She is now 9 years old and the only time you can see it is sometimes in pictures and sometimes in the mirror. She started a new school this year and the teachers never noticed it until the school pictures came back!! Her strawberry marks are gone now and the bluish tinge to her skin there is also gone. Plastic surgery is an option for her still, but it is not recommended until she is done growing and that is only if she has loose skin where it was. I would hold off on any surgery, I am glad I did!! I know it's hard on you, but if it is not bothering your daughter I would leave it alone and let nature take it's course. The hardest part you will have is the inconsiderate people you will come across when you are out!! Believe me, I had many comments said right to my face about my daughter and also had children and parents pointing and staring at her. Good luck with any decision you make, but remember even though she has this she is still a beautiful little girl!! Who cares what strangers think!!!  (+ info)

It is in the T5 location with moderate pain. She has had two MRIs with, all have said that there is no treatment recommended at the time. We should have it checked in 6-9 months. We would like to start trying to have a baby, but are holding off in fear of jeopardizing the baby's or my wife's health. What are the risks and recommended next steps? Hold off on the baby or go forward?

My first child had a hemangioma will my other children have hemangioma and is there anything I can do to prevent a hemangioma from developing?

For most families additional children born into a family where one child has a hemangioma is at no greater risk of having a hemangioma then the general population. The risk is not zero but no greater then anyone else. While there are a few isolated families with an extensive family history of hemangioma that have an occurrence rate of 50%, like flipping a coin this is extremely rare. 10% of all children are reported to have a hemangioma so it would it would be less then 1 in a million chance of having a second child with a hemangioma. There is nothing you can or can not do to prevent or cause a hemangioma from developing in your baby. Old wives tales used to include things like staying away from strawberries, nothing you could eat would cause a hemangioma.

pls help! how can i get rid of a broken capillary on my nose?


I wore a pair of sunglasses that were ill fitted and now!! I have a broken capillary on my nose and it is very noticeable. It has been there for 5 months and I don't know what I can do besides get rid of it at dermatologists office. Any suggestions??????
what if i create a hole with a pin and squeeze it like a pimple. will it go away? ugh I'm desperate!
----------

First of all one laser shot is not enough to treat a broken capillary.
It may become less visible but not completely gone.
Learn about the negative aspects as well, like blistering after the shot has been given.
Also you need to avoid sun for 4-5months after treatment as skin becomes more sensitive and you should not take hot showers only cold showers.
If you plan to take laser shot, take enough care of that skin and ask your doctor as many questions as you have. Until he / she answers them do not proceed.
If you can live with that visible capillary I think it would be more safe and happy as one can never predict the outcome of a laser surgery.
I am not advising against laser surgery but please take care of all aspects and find out as much information as you can on the internet.  (+ info)

Has anyone had any problems with a spinal hemangioma?


I had an MRI and they found a hemangioma on my T12 vertebrae. I know already what it is and that it is benign. On the MRI, it showed that my L5-S1 disc is pretty much done and L3-4 &L4-5 are on the way out. Now I have pain there (duh right) however I also have pain up higher and I have had pain there for as long as I can remember. The ortho doc I was referred to said there was nothing wrong with that area and there for the pain must be traveling up from the blown disc at L5-S1. There isn't really that much pain in between those 2 spaces though. Also, on the high spot, any pressure there has caused pain for many years, kind of like pain you get when you push on a really bad bruising.
I am wondering if anyone has had a similar experience or know someone that has and could that hemangioma be causing some of pain. I also have a hemangioma on my right sacral ala.
----------

I.m sure the doctor must know if he has checked you thoroughly. Sometimes you get referred pain when a problem in oone area causes pain in another. It could be this is what you have, Ask the doctor,  (+ info)
