I had rhinoplasty 4 months ago. My nose was very wide in the middle. At the 2.5 months my doctor gave me a kenalog injection which helped with swelling. I still have a bit of swelling that is causing my profile to look raised in the middle where I was the widest. I am pretty sure it is just swelling because it is spongy to the touch and compresses if I press down. I read that soaking in epsom salts can bring down swelling. Can putting a compress of epsom salts on my nose help bring it down?
Do Epsom Salts Help Bring Down Swelling

Epsom Salts to Decrease Nasal Swelling
The best treatment for nasal swelling 4 months after rhinoplasty is patience because this will continue to resolve over the next 8-10 months. Steroid injections are sometimes helpful. I've never used epsom salts topically to treat this problem or expedite the resolution of swelling in post-op rhinoplasty patients
