Can a nose break if pressed or twisted and if broken is there any treatment to reshape it ?

Dear doctor , if the nose is pressed or twisted hard by one s own hands or other s hands, will the nose break?? If yes, which portion of the nose will break-- nasal bone or nasal cartilage or both? Will the nasal septum also break? Can the broken part be treated and brought back into the original shape, size and structure?? Please clarify me.

hello and welcome to healthcare magic!!
well with too much traumatic force there are chances of fracture in your nasal bone structure and the nasal septum is made up of both bone and cartilage so to answer your question the cartilage part would be the easier part to break and the treatment would be corrective surgery if it is severe if it is mild it would heal on its own if you have suffered a trauma it is better you consult a doctor immediately.

Hi, I have a history of rashes and many stomach problems and it has been boiled down to IBS, gluten intolerance, nickel, cobalt, and ammonium persulfate. I have been having lots of occurences lately of red nose, or a completely red face and then break outs. This doesn t feel like normal acne. It flares up and is incredibly itchy. Most potent around my mouth (chin/and just straight down each side of my lips [as if the acne is drooling down my face]). My skin is very sensitive and because of this my allergist suggested I switch to fragrance free face care which I have. i can t figure out if it is an allergy or what it is but my face is so itchy and painful and embarassingly broken out. I dont know what to do. Please help.

Sir, My name is Mohit. My complexion is too fair but my nose size is too big as it worsens my facials appearance. Everytime I click a picture of myself I have to take a side pose so that the ugliness of my nose remains hidden. I want to get it reshaped but I heard that it can t be reshaped perfectly.I have never undergone any surgery etc. Please suggest me can it be done so, and how much will it cost (please provide an estimate necessarily), and rest of how many days will be required.
