This is Dr. David
you should see a lymphedema massage therapist and learn some nose lymphedema massage therapy techniques to help massage the fluid and edema out of the tip of your nose.
you have to massage the fluid up and away from the tip of your nose.
and over time this can help.
you should also write the manufactures of nose right and complain to them as well.
and tell them what happened.
i have done so but they have not answered back
is there any medication that i will have to take
my Pysician prescribed me antihistamines which didn't work
I see the website.
also i have tried massaging it sometimes aswell but it gets worse
you have the massage the fluid up and out of the nose.
that's what im worried, also when it is hot it gets really bad ,
okay just another note
it nearly went away in the beginning of september , however i then went on a vitamin A cream which then worsened the condition
i didn't realise it would have an effect on my nose
well, if it always went away before, it can go away again.
okay is this all that i should do?
yes, that is what you should do for now.
avoid excessive salt in your diet which can worsen edema.
avoid excessive sun exposure on your face.
sun damage can worsen skin damage.
you will be fine.
good luck to you

ok i wanted to consult a plastic surgeon about it , since it has changed the shape of my nose, would this be the right thing to do
you can consult with a plastic surgeon.
would surgery help the situation ?
and one final question
how long will this take to resolve
surgery can cause scar tissue and I can't see your skin or nose or edema at this point.
you have to see a plastic surgeon face to face to get an evaluation of your nose.
i have thicker skin due to the edema
massage of your nose to push out the edema helps the most.
Thank you for your help Doctor
yes, up towards the bridge of your nose
and up and towards your upper cheeks.
ok i will do , so thanks
That's fine , no worries
Hi sorry i'm a bit confused on this process, i thought there would be a chat, also i have just paid the of £36 is that correct. I was advised to do drainage massage by an another physican and also i asked about surgery but he said it cause scar tissue, sorry for the slow reply
Thanks Doctor, I agree as well , as everytime i try massaging it ,it just gets worse, it did at one point nearly go away around August, But it came back when i was on a vitamin A cream , i did not realise it would affect my nose. My nose before the edema was much smaller and now it is a lot thicker and i am concerned about post rhinoplasty Swelling. Is there any other things i can do in the mean before i opt for surgery? i was really considering it for a while.
Okay , would the actual fluids in the nose go away in time even after surgery? The tip feels hard
Okay thank you very much for all your help Doctor :) i will be looking into a good surgeon
