Hi, Did anybody notice facial hair on the nose, upper lip, between eyebrows during cyclosporine, propanalol medication of U'r little girl's KD treatment?

It's normal. The steroids and cyclosporine both will give her hair growth. Keep her out of the sun if she is on cyclosporine. Once she is off the steroids and cyclosporine the hair growth should stop. We used a pen shaver you can buy at a drugstore, walmart, target after she stopped steroids and trimmed her facial hair and body hair. The hair didn't come back and our daughter looks normal again. I wouldn't worry too much about the hair growth.
