Should I see an ENT/surgeon for my nose? Or should I just leave it alone? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 3
Other possible complications from an untreated septal hematoma also include a collapsed nose and breathing difficulties. Separation or tearing of the nasal cartilages, which is what your case sounds like, can also cause significant nasal dysfunction and cosmetic alteration You’re fortunate that you didn’t experience the pain usually associated with nasal trauma and/or an acute nosebleed. This is usually followed by swelling of the nose, black and blue bruises around the eyes, and difficulty breathing through the nose.
Regardless of when you consult an ENT, please do your best to overcome this habit of pushing and moving the tip of your nose excessively.
All the best
