I had a nose job to fix a bump on the right tip of my nose. It was really sensitive. I got it from a previous nose job. My doctor decided to shave it down. The bump is still there (barely visible) and I can still feel it. I feel it every moment of every day and it's annoying. The right side of my nose feels very thick and sensitive while the left side is softer and a little wider. My doctor said he had no idea how it got like that in the first place. Is there an injection I could get to get rid of the sensitivity?
Sensitive Nose Bump After Rhinoplasty

Cortisone injections could help
It sounds as though there is a cartilage bump on the right side of the nose. Frequently after a revision rhinoplasty or a primary rhinoplasty the nose will be swollen with edema and for sure will be sensitive. A small shot of cortisone can be placed into that area to decrease the sensitivity and will melt away scar tissue and lymphatic edema in the area the injection is performed.
