With the right care and attention, a nose injury can heal properly, leaving you with no problems. In some instances, the long term effects of a nose injury can continue to cause problems. Accident Advice Helpline offer help and advice about claiming compensation for injuries which were not your fault.
A nose injury can occur if your face gets banged during an accident. Immediate symptoms can be bleeding and pain. A medical practitioner should assess your injury and give you the right treatment.
What can happen if your nose doesn’t quite heal
When your nose has healed, you may not get any further problems, but more serious injuries can mean you continue to suffer.
A broken nose can lead to your nose looking bent, but you shouldn’t feel any pain. In some cases you may consider plastic surgery if your nose is too misshapen, but always get the best advice on this first.
If you damage your nose more than once, you could damage the tissues inside the nose. This can lead to rhinitis and problems with breathing or the feeling of a blocked nose. Rhinitis can also cause a runny nose, or mucus in the back of the throat.
These symptoms are often more of an inconvenience than a serious medical problem, but you may develop an infection or sinusitis if they are not treated. You should visit your GP if you think you have an infection as you may need antibiotics.
