Elbowed nose

I got elbowed in the nose pretty hard. It hurt by it self for a while, but 12 hrs later it hurt when touched or when my jaw is clenched.

Hi, is there any discoloration? redness? the injury can cause inflammation and sometimes a hematoma and this can cause pain.     You could apply cold compress and for pain relief you can use OTC Tylenol (acetaminophen). If the pain does not resolve consult your doctor to rule out an infection or a fracture. Regards.
