Customer Question
Hey! so a couple...

Hey! so a couple days ago I got elbowed in the nose and my nose is now swollen and slightly bruised and there is a little bit of a tingling/numbness feeling between my eyebrows.. should I go and see a doctor? or is it going to go away

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

I also have a deviated septum that I've had for a coupled of years and occasionally my nose hurts but nothing major to go see a doctor and swelling for about 3 days

If your symptoms are not increasing and symptoms are mild to moderate, following should be able to resolve it;

1) Ice compresses three to four times a day.

2) Motrin.

3) Avoid physical exertion (relative rest).

The tingling / numbness is due to pressure on the nerve due to swelling.

If they symptoms are severe, progressive or headache appear, you may go to doctor for the evaluation.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
