Broken Nose
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
A small fracture of the bone in your nose will usually heal in about a month. A really bad break may need surgery after the swelling is gone.

Causes
Any blow to the nose can cause a break. The injury is typically sustained during athletics or in a fall.


Signs/Symptoms
Swelling, pain, bruising, and bleeding can be expected. Your face may feel numb or tingle. If the break has pushed the bones out of place, the nose may seem out of shape.


Care
If you have a bad break, many emergency rooms order an x-ray, and surgery may be necessary. X-rays often fail to detect a nasal fracture, so your physician may delay them for 1 to 4 days after the injury, or until the swelling has gone down. Often, an x-ray is not even needed and a fracture can be diagnosed on physical examination. If skin was scratched or torn during the accident, you may also have to get a tetanus shot as well have the laceration repaired.


WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
Apply ice to the injury for 15 to 20 minutes each hour for the first 1 to 2 days. Put the ice in a plastic bag and place a towel between the bag of ice and your skin.
When you lie down, rest your head on 2 or 3 pillows so it is above the level of your heart. This will help reduce pain and swelling.
Always take your medicine as directed. Over-the-counter medications may be taken for pain.
If you are given a tetanus shot, your arm may get swollen, red, and warm to the touch at the injection site. This is a normal reaction to the medicine.
If you are given a splint for your nose, try to keep it dry and do not remove it until your doctor gives the go-ahead.
You may be allowed to take the splint off to shower. Ask your doctor whether this is okay.

one word : Ice!! Ice, ice,ice,ice,ice,ice,ice,ice!!!!! It will go down much quicker if ice is on it. Maybe it will take a few hours or 20 minutes or a day. Depends.

Use Ice, some more ice and when you can't take it anymore...put some more ice on it. That is the only way to keep the swelling down. The swelling should go down in a few hours. I'm sorry about your injury.

ice on for 15 min, ice off for 10, then ice in for 15 repeat until swelling comes down. if black circles form under your eye(s) your nose is broken, I would also recconend using frozen peas, or corn instaed of ice packs or cubes, they don't melt and will form fit the nose more comfortably!


hanksimon
Get a bag of frozen peas or vegetables to use as an ice pack. If it is just your nose, then it may look worse tomorrow, but should be much better in 48 hours.... keep the ice on it, for as long as the ice doesn't hurt.

If you have bruising, such as black eyes, the swelling will still go down in about 48 - 72 hours, but the bruising may not go away for about 4 - 6 days.

Depends on how bad the initial injury was. I had a hit on the nose and eye which took abou t 10 days to get back to normal.

Wait it out a couple of hours. Be sure to put plenty of ice on it. Good luck!
