Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Hemangioma volume measured by MRI or SONO [ Time Frame: After 16weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    We compared hemangioma volume measured by MRI or SONO, before and 16 weeks after medications.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Size changes from baseline [ Time Frame: After 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measure the horizontal and vertical size (2-dimension)

  • Heart rate change from Baseline at 16 weeks [ Time Frame: up to 16weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Heart rate fall to <70% of acceptable age related minimum post-dose with child awake

  • Change from Baseline in color [ Time Frame: After 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Red/Purple/Blue/Gray/Apricot

  • Changes in Size of Ulceration [ Time Frame: After 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measure the horizontal and vertical size (2-dimension)

  • Whether or not Re-epithelized in 16weeks [ Time Frame: After 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Yes/No

  • Stop time of proliferation [ Time Frame: After 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The time when hemangioma stop growing within 16 weeks

  • Time of regression [ Time Frame: Within 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The time when hemangioma decreased to 75% of baseline size

  • Drug compliance within 16 weeks [ Time Frame: After 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Check the number of having drugs and skip time.

  • Change from Baseline in systolic blood pressure at 16 weeks [ Time Frame: up to 16weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Systolic blood pressure fall of >25% of baseline postdose with child awake

  • Changes from baseline in Glucose level at 16 weeks [ Time Frame: up to 16weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Check the Glucose level whether to fall (to <50mg/dl)

  • Whether the facial edema occurs within 16 weeks [ Time Frame: up to 16weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Yes/No

  • Whether growth retardation occurs within 16 weeks [ Time Frame: up to 16weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    When the subject do not grow in 16 weeks at all.

  • Whether the Gastroesophageal reflux occurs within 16 weeks [ Time Frame: up to 16weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Yes/No

  • Number of Participants with Adverse drug reaction [ Time Frame: up to 16weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    All symptoms associated adverse drug reaction will be checked
