    How to spot broken nose symptoms


    A blow to the head could lead to a broken nose – for example if you fall and hit your head or if you are injured in a road traffic accident. Broken nose symptoms can be similar to head injury symptoms, so if you experience any severe symptoms then it’s best to seek medical attention. The good news is that most broken noses can be managed at home with some self-care, and the swelling will usually go down within a week, although it can take a couple of weeks for bruising to vanish.

    If you’ve broken your nose in an accident that somebody else was responsible for, why not consider making a personal injury claim? Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a 100% no-win, no-fee* claim, as long as it has been three years or less since your accident happened.

    What are the most common broken nose symptoms?

    Broken nose symptoms can include:

    • Bleeding or mucus discharge from the nose
    • Crooked nose
    • Bruising around the nose or eyes
    • Swelling of the nose, cheeks and surrounding areas
    • Difficulty breathing
    • Pain and tenderness, particularly when you touch your nose

    If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s a good idea to get checked out by a doctor. A broken nose can generally be managed at home with over-the-counter painkillers and ice packs to reduce swelling and minimise bruising. If you suffer any more serious symptoms such as clear fluid leaking from your nose, a severe headache or blurry vision, this could be indicative of a head injury, so you should get this checked out immediately. If your nose is crooked or misshapen, you may need to see your GP – you may also need to visit your GP if the swelling does not go down within a week or two or if it suddenly gets worse. Some people find that sleeping with a few extra pillows can help to reduce swelling.
