Pain and Itching After Rhinoplasty & Chin Implant

I had the surgery in Argentina. My nose is itching me a lot and I feel like fluid coming out of my nose all the time. I can't sleep without my sleeping pills. My face also feels very heavy. I am very uncomfortable and it's been a week now. The painkillers aren't helping in Argentina. Is this normal? I don't really know what to do.

A few questions would have to be answered. 1)  Did you have a foreign body such as silastic put in your nose?

2) Are you currently on antibiotics?

Have you had someone look in the nose?

If you are still concerned an exam with a board certified plastic surgeon is in order.

All the best,
