Nerve damage: Trauma to the face may damage the nerves that subserve facial sensation. If the nerve is only concussed, it will recover on its own. If the damage to the nerve is more severe, it may not fully recover. ...Read more

A mix of genetic &: Environmental factors cause Expressive Language Disorder. The same number of ear infections occur in Preschoolers with & without ELD. When hearing returns to normal after Conductive Hearing Loss, linguistic impairments from CHL also stop. Multiple genes have been found for ELD in family linkage studies. Other perinatal risk factors contribute, like prematurity. A nasal fracture doesn't cause it. ...Read more

When I blow my nose there is blood for the past week or so, no picking, trauma...Even more when I do a nose wash?

See Ent if persists: Bleeding from the nose has multiple possible etiologies including, but not limited to being on blood thinners, nasal trauma, inflamed/infected/dry nasal lining, & nasal mass. If bleeding is mild and stops with nose squeezing pressure, try nasal saline rinses 4x/day, humidified air at night, & Bacitracin to septum nightly.

Epistaxis.: Stress is unlikely to be the reason for this nose bleed; it may prolong the nose bleed if associated with long standing high blood pressure, but does not cause it on its own. Most common cause is nose picking. Many local and systemic conditions can cause nose bleed. If it persists, see your fp or ent. ...Read more

I'd try icing the tip of your nose for a few days with otc anti-inflammatory medications. If no change, check with your primary doctor for a further evaluation ...Read more
