Health Tip: Broken Nose Care

(HealthDay News) -- After breaking your nose, you should rest, ice it and keep your head elevated, says MedlinePlus.

When caring for a broken nose at home, MedlinePlus reminds people:

  • Do not remove any packing or splints unless instructed by your doctor.

  • Take hot showers to breathe in the steam.

  • Clean the inside of your nose with a cotton swab.

  • Avoid heavy lifting and sports until your nose heals.

  • If you take any medicine nasally, talk to your doctor first.
