Can nerve damage cause a bump on the nose after a dog bite?

I was bitten on the nose by a dog a couple of weeks ago. 10 stitches. My nose has a “bump” inside of it and the tip of my nose is numb as well as my upper lip. This sensation begin immediately after getting bite. My doctor said I had nerve damage and that is what the bump is Do you agree ?

The loss of sensation points towards nerve injury or damage. For that, you can be prescribed multivitamin and antioxidant tablet.

Anti-inflammatory medication also needs to be prescribed for the bump. The bump can be due to inflammatory swelling.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

HI! I have a 5yr old daughter when she was born she passed her hearing test. Since then she has had 2 sets of tubes placed in both ears. She just had her second set about 4 weeks ago. Well she failed her hearing test at school so of course I take her to her specialist and right tube is still in ear and stuck. So, her second surgery 4 weeks ago was removal of second right tube and 2 new ones put in and she took another hearing test yesterday and she failed again audiologist stated she has nerve damage. How did this happen? she has never been in a major accident. Could this have been caused by the doctor? Thanks a concerned Mother
