Remember to follow additional instructions given to you by your doctor and attend follow up appointments as scheduled. It is important to adhere to these guidelines and instructions to best control your nosebleeds and prevent them in the future.
Bruises around the eyes and/or a slightly crooked nose following injury usually indicate a fractured nose. If the bones are pushed over or out to one side, immediate medical attention is ideal. But once soft tissue swelling distorts the nose, waiting 48-72 hours for a doctor’s appointment may actually help the doctor in evaluating your injury as the swelling recedes.
