Bruised nose: what are the signs?

When the nose is bruised, it hurts and can swell.

It is also conceivable that the nose bleeds, but the bleeding stops quickly.

A bruised nose is not particularly easy to recognize from the outside, so even an expert cannot tell you at first glance whether the nose is bruised or broken.

The swelling can also cause breathing difficulties, which should subside after two days, if not, you should see a doctor again.

If a nose bruise occurs, the nose may hurt when touched.

The situation is different if the nose swells up severely, bleeds excessively or is even deformed.

Then the nose is probably broken.

Headaches are also conceivable in such a situation – but if there is nausea, sensitivity to light or confusion, a concussion can also be present.

Here's what you can do for a bruised nose

  • For nosebleeds: Place a cold cloth on the back of the neck, causing the blood vessels to constrict.

    Important: Do not tilt your head back, then the blood will flow back and get into the stomach.

  • Cool your nose to help reduce swelling.

Bruised nose: Doctors call this S00.35

Illnesses and injuries are classified internationally.

The process is called the International Classification of Diseases (ICD).

It is published and regularly updated by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The ICD code standardizes medical diagnoses and is used in research, in practical medicine and for billing health insurance companies for illnesses.

The bruised nose also has a special code: S00.35.

On the website of the Federal Ministry of Health there is the following addition "Superficial injury to the nose bruise".

If you find general ICD codes on medical documents, then note that there are also additional identifiers that secure the diagnosis.

If anything is unclear, ask your doctor.
