I hit myself in the nose with my laptop. there seems to be no bleeding, or weird feeling but when i touch it slightly, it only hurts a little bit. is putting ice the best solution?

Nose trauma is a very common occurrence. In the absence of dislocation, bleeding, localized pain that lasts or headache, the best treatment is to use Acetaminophen for pain, and ice packs for swelling.
