Thank you for sharing your problem with me here.

With the history of fall on the face with nasal bleeding, there would be some contusion of the tissues of the face and even facial bones. There could also be collection of blood or fluid into the sinus. So you can try an ice pack over the swollen areas and steam inhalation for a day.

If you do not get better in 24 hours, it would be better to visit the doctor.

I hope this answers your query. Please revert to me if you have any doubt.
