Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding pain in nose after hit by a toy for last four days.

As you said about 4 days have passed but severity of pain of nose is more and you does not feel better. you have bruising of eye as well, this indicates that hit was with great force and therefore there may be fracture of nasal bones. It is advice to go for X-Ray nasal bones in A.P. & Lateral views. If it shows fracture than you have to consult A ENT doctor for medical care but on the other hand if X-Ray shows no fracture than you have to take these -

(a) Antibiotic - Amoxicillin 625 mg thee times a day.

(b) Anti inflammatory and analgesic like combination of Diclofenac with serratiopeptidase.

(c) Cold compression by ice bags.

I hope this will help you.
