Tessamarie - I don't know where in Ontario you are, but there is a Dr. Elana Pope at Sicks Kids hospital in Toronto. She is a pediatric dermatologist who specializes in hemangiomas. We saw her this week for our daughter's hemangioma (not on nose) - she wasn't helpful for us - we've chosen laser treatment and have started it in the US. Sick Kids just started using lasers last month (gulp!). But if it is medication that you need, you could see her - her resident told me she is a big believer in propanolol. I would go back and insist that your family doctor refer you to her, I got an appt pretty quickly - within 2.5 weeks of the referral being sent, which is pretty good for Canadian standards! Good luck!
