The Baby’s Nose Is Swollen To The Cheek After Cleaning The Nasal Discharge?
Hello, I’m Fitri, 19 years old. Two weeks ago I cleaned my nasal stool but it was very painful, dry and just cleansed to bleed. After a week my right nose began to swell followed by my cheek and it hurt after two days of the swelling going up. I wonder what the symptoms are and how to handle it ?. Thank you
Hello Fitri, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Swelling of the nose accompanied by pain that occurs after a trauma / injury to the nasal skin may occur due to infection of the skin of your nose. If the swelling occurs up to your cheeks, then the possibility of infection in your nose has spread to your cheek area. In this condition, you should immediately check yourself to the ENT doctor so that you can further evaluate the swelling in the area of your nose and cheeks. It is better not to delay the examination because the infection can continue to spread if not handled properly. In these conditions you will likely need therapy with antibiotics.
To temporarily reduce pain, you can compress swollen areas of your face with a warm compress, and you can also take pain relievers such as paracetamol. It is better not to scrape your nose again to avoid further injury and infection.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
