ENT Specialist 's  Response
It is normal to have blood while spitting after nose trauma. Do not blow nose for few days as air goes into the tissues through the injured mucosa and that must have caused the swelling. Just palpate that area and if you are not feeling any bone break and any difficulty in opening mouth and taking bite, just take analgesics and nasal decongestants. If any of above symptoms, do consult and ENT. Regards
