Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify, have you had any injuries to the nose and mouth before? Or, have you rubbed or sprinkled something on your nose? Are there any other complaints you feel?
Nose that feels painful, hardens, and swells up to the lip area may occur due to the following reasons:
Irritant contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with an irritating substance)
Allergic contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to an allergy to a substance in contact with the skin)
Insect or other animal bites
Infections, eg erysipelas, impetigo, folliculitis, cellulitis
Benign or malignant tumors
Injury (for example from being hit hard)
Other disorders of the nose (for example, rhinitis, sinusitis, polyps), and so on
You need to go directly to a doctor or ENT specialist if indeed the complaints you are experiencing feel very great, even disturbing your sleep. It takes a direct clinical examination to find out exactly what triggers the swelling and pain you feel, then appropriate treatment can be given. In some cases, allergy tests, X-rays, CT scans, or other supporting tests can also be done.
In the meantime, try compressing the swollen nose and lips area with ice cubes. Get plenty of rest, lie down and raise your head slightly with a pillow. Avoid over-massaging the swollen nose area, and also avoid applying or giving any medicine to relieve the swelling (unless prescribed by a doctor directly). To help reduce pain, you can first take paracetamol.
Hope it helps ..
