Nose injury, fluid leakage, headache, drowsiness, weird taste in mouth. Taken ibuprofen. Treatment?

I hit my nose with a door and the fluid started coming out - wasn t sure what colour as it was dark. woke up next morning and my nose and head hurts and i feel drowsy and I have a weird taste in the back of my mouth like when you take nose drops.. I have taken ibuprofin for the pain and put some tiger balm on the areas that are hurting but not much has changed

Hi and thanks for the query,
You should visit the doctor to rule out 2 conditions,
1) nasal bone fracture - needs correction only if there is displacement.
2) septal haematoma - wherein blood collects between the septal cartilage and its covering. It has to be drained or it can permanently damage the septum.
Regards, Dr Kishori.
