Broken nose, irritated and itchy nostrils

Hi, I broke my nose 2 years ago, since my nose has a hump/bump (almost like the bone is out of place), and the surrounding nasal area is red, furthermore both nostrils get irritated, itchy, uncomftable and blocked (prevents me from breathing) with flaky skin. Can you suggest what I can do to treat this, considering I m only looking to get it treated via the NHS.

Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
If there is any nasal deformity inside as well as outside which is causing you difficulty in breathing, you need to undergo a correction surgery to get it right. The name of the surgery is Septorhinoplasty.
Good Luck

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar

Hi, I was kicked in the face whilst I was on laid on my back on the floor. This resulted in a broken nose. It is almost 2 weeks since this happened and the swelling appears to have gone and the last of the bruising is on its way out. But I have noticed 2 pea size hard lumps. 1 at the side of my nose, almost on my cheek and the other is at the entrance to my nostril. Please could you advise on what they could be and if I should gain further medical help?

My son is 10 years old. Three months ago he broke his nose at school. His nose healed straight so no surgery has been required. This week he has had a number of large nose bleeds from the right nostril although it does eventually end up running from both sides. The bleeds happen for no reason but have happened more at bed time when he is lying down. Could something be damaged in his nose from the break or is the start of the bleeding to distant from the original injury and unrelated?

Dear Dr, I am 30 years Male. I had productive cough in morning for last 2 months and I was suffering from sinusitis also. The sputum was green. Now the cough is gone and only sinusitis remains, no that much sputum. I done a chest x-ray last week which came normal. However doctor told a elevation in Diaphragm and enlagement of heart. What will be the reason of this?. Active Pulmonoray TB not there, but will it be Miliary TB symptom or Amoebic Liver Abscess or anything else?? Please advice me for the next step

About a month ago I heard a loud noise in my right ear and got dizzy. Then two weeks later I had upper respiratory and my right ear looked irritated. I was prescribed z pack. Then two weeks after that I felt I couldnt swallow, my skin on my neck was stretching, pressure in my face, and dizzy. I went back to the doctor and he said both ears were irritated and I probably had sinus infection, even though I had no mucus. He prescribed amoxicillin and advil congestion relief. The pressure in my head at times was uncomfortable to a point where I had to look in the mirror and make sure my face was not disformed. I went back a few days, even though the other symptoms went away and he ordered an MRI. All came back normal except for a maxillary mucus retention cyst in my right sinus. The doctor said it was very small and should not be causing all this. Last night I went to the er because, the pressure in my nose for the past two days makes me feel as if I am not able to breathe. My right ear and head are numb when I feel the pressure in my right nostril. No matter what I take no mucus or flem is coming out and I get panicky when I feel the pressure and numbness. I have to say the pressure is not as intense these past few days as it was last week but still uncomfortable and scary. The ER doctor just ordered claritin but when I called my doctor that said it would dry me up more and he gave me sudafed which I am now taking. also was on lexapro (2,5mg) for a few years and took a year or so to wean off it correctly. I have been off of it for over two months. Could this be related? I have an appointment with an ENT this week.

I am a 53 year old female, 5 ft 3 ins and 13stone 8lbs. about 7 years ago I had a bad chest infection which I didn t take medication for as it happened over the Xmas holidays. Since then, whenever I get a virus or a cold the right side of my throat and chest feels heavy and I get a cough which takes a while to go away. Is this normal?
