Banged nose. Throbbing, pain, puffy eyes. Applied ice, took ibuprofen with codeine. Red mark on nose. Correct treatment?

Hi I banged nose against corner of a wall cos I tripped over an object at night. Nose bleed for a minute and was trobbing now eyes puffy but nose not too sore just if I twitch it upwards. Didn't go to Docs but just put some ice then swelling went down during the day but is back this morning so put some more ice and have been taking ibruprofen with codeine once a day. A red mark has appeared (second morning) by cut on nose so maybe the pain is coming outwards. Am I doing the correct thing? Do I need to see a Doc? Thank you very much

Hello Friend
Welcome to H.C.M
there is nothing to panic as it seems there is no deep injury. but still i would suggest you to get the XRay nose lateral view, just to rule out any minor fracture. you can continue to take analgesics for three days and start nasal decongestants for about a week. But still I would suggest you to consult the Specialist if you don’t get relief as on examination the findings may be different and line of treatment may have to be changed. Please don’t hesitate to consult and ask for any more query. i will be pleased to answer.
With best wishes for a speedy cure
Yours sincerely
