Acute nasal edema and erythema
Nose swelled and changed shape.
- I am concerned about the change you describe in your nose.
- Assuming it happened fairly recently, something happened to damage your nasal structure.
- There would be various causes, among them injury, infection and damage to the inside of the nose by vasoconstrictors, such as cocaine.
- You need to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Facial Plastic surgeon for a full evaluation and probably x-ray studies as well.
- Whatever the problem, treating the cause is needed. This may with luck reduce the swelling dramatically and start to return your nose to its normal appearance. Best wishes.
