Swelling on nose bridge. What could be the reason ?

hi doc, Pls help me on this. On the right side of my nose bridge, just below the eye a swelling appears from time to time about five times already . The 2 last swellings occurred end of march and just this afternoon, it appeared again. There s no pain but it felt a bit numb. I wonder what is it.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
This can be lacrimal sac obstruction, you need to consult your ophthalmologist for this problem. Probing of the duct might be required.

Take care

My daughter is on vacation with my parents on the Oregon coast. She just texted me telling me she woke up with swelling of the bridge if her nose and eyes. She has has a sun burn and has been on the ocean and river the past two days. They Gabe her benadryl over and hour ago and there is no change in the swelling. What could this be?

Hi, the bridge of my nose is swollen and sensitive to the touch - almost as if I had walked into a shelf - so it s isolated to the upper area of the nose, not the tip. I also have a runny nose with clear mucus. And the inside burns similarly to a sinus infection I had several years ago. But there isn t pain or an ache in my cheeks or forehead. Could this be a sinus infection - just on the top of my nose vs the cheeks? Thank you

last night I was bitten by something on the top of my forehead. I woke up this morning with swelling around my eyes and bridge of my nose. I took a dose of benadryl but with no help. The swelling is getting a bit worse as the day progresses and my eyers are tearing. What type of bite could this be and how do I make it better?
