My boyfriend was hit...

My boyfriend was hit in his cheek and his nose and mouth are still bleeding two hours later. Should we take him to the ER?

Doctor's Assistant: When did the bleeding begin? Has your boyfriend used any medication for it?

No he hasn’t, and he was hit two hours ago but he only noticed in the shower when trying to clear mucus as if “hawking a lugie” and when he flushed his sinus

Doctor's Assistant: Has he seen a doctor about the bleeding?

No it just happened

He is 27. The bleeding is persistent but there isn’t much. He is not taking any medications but he does do a sinus rinse every morning. His cheek is swollen but no difficulty breathing.

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, he should do cool compresses with an Ice pack on the nose and cheek.

He should do Nasal saline spray.

Avoid blowing nose.

Give him OTC Tylenol only.

If his nose is getting swell with persistent bleeding more than 30 minutes with difficulty in breathing then visit an emergency room for nasal packing.

An X-ray can be advised.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
