Hello. My name is***** and I just read through your question.

Sometimes after nose bleeds we can develop something called a septal hematoma. These can possibly develop into abscesses. But even if it doesn't, it has to be drained. These typically do not resolve on their own. An ENT is equipped to do this. It is worth being evaluated by one to help alleviate this problem.

waiting for it to go away won't help? I need to make a specialist appointment, not a primary care?
Health Professional: Eric Goldstein, Doctor (MD) replied 8 months ago

Waiting for it to go away is not a good idea. However, I would go to your primary first and have it evaluated before you went to the ENT.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
