Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
It is not broken for sure..then it would have swelled up and would be too painful to touch.
It might be an abrasion of allergi reaction.
Apply lactocalamine lotion to the local area.
Consult your doctor if any problem arises.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.

Pediatrician Dr. Sanjay Sharma's  Response

Hi ,
Thanks for placing your query here.
I can appreciate your concerns.
Symptoms of a broken nose include:
*Severe nose pain.
*Swelling of the nose.
*A crooked or bent appearance.
*Bruising around the nose or eyes.
*A grating sound or feeling when the nose is touched or rubbed.
*Blocked nasal passages.
As he seems to be none of the features mentioned above , the chances of fracture nose bone are negligible.
You can give paracetamol in appropriate doses for 1-2 days for pain relief.
The bruising will fade away within a week
Hope I have answered your query.
Best regards.
