Swollen Nose After An Accident?
Tonight, I want to ask. My friend experienced swelling in the nose after an accident / collision, but did not bleed. Is swelling dangerous? And will there be any other impact caused by the swelling?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Swelling of the nose with a history of previous injuries to the face, it is necessary to do a careful physical examination to rule out the possibility of a bad condition. The swelling does not always cause bleeding, if it does not injure blood vessels.
Some of the causes of post-injury swelling include:
1. Broken nasal bones
2. Deviation of the nasal septum
3. Soft tissue dislocation in the nose
In addition to the need for a direct physical examination, additional examinations can also be done such as plain X-ray or CT scan. If the injury is classified as quite severe and an abnormality is found then it can cause airway obstruction, nasal bone deformity, blood vessel injury, or olfactory disorders. Therefore do not hesitate to consult further with your doctor to get adequate therapy.
That's all, hope you can help.
