The list is here: http://birthmark.org/node/47#florida Although, I'm not sure that the doctor listed there is exactly what you need, it might be a good idea to schedule a consultation with him and see what he has to say.

Nasal hemangiomas need treatment of some sort ... at least a specialist who will help you evaluate each step. Some hemangiomas (not all) can grow rapidly, and ones on the nose can be the most disfiguring and difficult to fix after the fact.

If you can go to Gainesville, if you have the resources and can travel, I'd go there.

Keep in touch!
Thank you! I agree that we need a specialist to evaluate. Especially with the location of his hemangioma, I'm concerned that it could start growing rapidly and cause problems. I'd rather see if something could be done before we get to that point. I do believe I am going to try to make the trip to Gainesville. I will update when I can!

Also, I'd be interested to see if anyone else browsing this forum has experience with nasal hemangioma & what type of treatments, if any, they pursued.
