My daughter was born with a birthmark and has been on steroid treatment since she was a month old. She is now 8 1/2 months old. There have been many side effects, such as stigmatism (she now wears glasses), constipation and rashes. Just wondering if anyone else has had this experience. Trying to reach out :)

Quoting Dana:



My son has had several courses of steroids for asthma, but he hasn't had any long lasting effects.  What kind of steroid is she taking - is it topical or oral?






She is on oral steroids and we just got her down to 3ml a day and her birthmark started to grow again. I am now looking at a drug treatment that is only in the trial stages but has been used to treat blood presure in infants since the 70s, it has no side effects.
