I tripped and fell on the carpet and got bruises all over my nose. Need immediate help in resolving this?

Bruises resolve: Bruises get better on their own. The issues and questions which concern me more in a story like this are: Why did you trip? Was alcohol involved?

The inner corner of my eye (near my nose) hurts when i touch it and makes me all tearing kinda feels like a bruise?

The inner corner of my eye (near my nose) hurts when i touch it and makes me all tearing kinda feels like a bruise?

Need to have it seen: By an eye doctor, who can view it under the slit lamp. You may have a drainage issue, or it may be tender, because it's inflamed, especially if there's a minor blockage (dacryolith), or from infection (dacryocystitis), or if it's not draining properly. This can all be done and evaluated by an eye doctor very easily. Best to have it checked out, and get to the bottom of it! May be something simple. ...Read more

Broken vs bruised nose? I fell into an object last nite. Nose /swollen / painful to touch. Inner eyes are bruised.  Small knot on nose

May need Xray & exam: The more important thing is that you are checked for injuries such as an orbital fracture and for a septal hematoma. A nasal bone fracture is probably not itself very important. But fractures of the orbit can cause problems with eye movement, and septal hematomas can lead to a septal perforation which may cause a persistent sensation of nasal congestion. ...Read more

A girl fell directly on my nose. It bled for a while, but stopped. It's not too swollen, and there is a tiny bruise. Is it broken? When will pain stop?

Need x-ray to tell: If broken or not, but if clinically your nose looks straight, you are able to breathe comfortably though each nostril, and are able to move the soft, fleshy part of your nose without significant increase in pain, then most likely it is not broken. A non-displaced fracture of the nasal bones will heal fine without treatment as long as there is not a new injury. Pain will last several days. ...Read more
