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?
