Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Apply ice pack on swelling intermittently and this will help to decrease swelling and pain.
You can take medication like ibuprofen for pain relief with food.
Fracture has to be ruled out by going for investigation with X ray of nose bones.
Therefore I suggest you to consult an ENT surgeon for further advice.
Hope I have answered your query.
