Pain In The Nose After Injury?
Tonight, I want to ask …, this afternoon I joined the taekwondo tournament, my nose was hit badly, until now it still hurts, I shake it, even though I don’t bleed, what should I do?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Injury to the nose can mean a number of things, it could be due to a crack, broken nose, or bruising due to a very hard impact. This condition cannot be known without direct examination. Our advice, you should check your condition to the doctor, may be a general practitioner and may also be a surgeon, for further examination, especially in the form of x-rays. By doing an x-ray, you can find out the structure of your skull and your nose bones. If there are abnormalities in the form of cracks or even broken, can be known in this way. The handling you will receive later will depend on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, compress your nose with a cold compress, and may take over-the-counter anti-pain and anti-inflammatory drugs by reading the instructions for use. Do not touch your nose, avoid lifting heavy loads, avoid removing nasal mucus too strong and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
