Plastic surgery is indicated for hemangiomas that are life threatening or deforming and did not respond to an appropriate treatment. For facial hemangiomas with no significant reduction in size between 2 and 3 years of age, surgical intervention should be considered, especially if the lesion is disfiguring. Surgery may also be indicated for hemangiomas that have been left alone and do not show signs of shrinkage after a few years. Some experts are convinced that watchful waiting and massage therapy (with the parents massaging the area four times daily) is the best treatment.
One last point: Because steroids have all these side effects, a lot of abusers will then take other drugs to offset the effect—steroid abuse causes you to grow man-boobs, so people take another drug to mitigate those side effects. Guys who take steroids often also take augmenting drugs to decrease estrogen production or to improve athletic performance even further, like human growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor 1, insulin, erythropoietin, stimulants, diuretics, levothyroxine, and/or gamma-hydroxybutyrate, according to the study in FP Essentials . That means on top of all these side effects of steroids, most abusers are also looking at a whole separate list of effects from their peripheral drug habits.
