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.

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? I also suffer from chronic sinusitis which doesn t help as I get a mucus build up on that side of my throat most days
