May I request you to upload and image please?
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
I don’t have an image but I told you about squeezing my Bose together just above the tip extremely hard and now after about almost two weeks a bump has formed and I do not know it is? Is it scar tissue?
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 20 days ago.
Hi... Thank you for the information.
The possibilities here could be -
1. An internal tissue damage leading onto a small keloid formation. This is a small scar internally.
2. Once any area of the body is squeezed there will be a small fibrous tissue formation as a reactive healing and this is what you might have been experiencing.I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you today!Is there anything else where I can be of assistance to you in this regard please.

If it’s number 2 will the fibrous tissue go away because its making the shape of my nose look different?
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 20 days ago.
If you do not keep meddling with that then it will go away gradually but I cannot predict the exact time period.
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
the fibrous tissue is not permenant?
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 20 days ago.
If it is not given further irritation it will gradually settle down.
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
I want it to be gone forever how can that be possible?
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 20 days ago.
It will gradually get better if you do not keep further pressing it.
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
How long roughly will it take to go away completely?
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 20 days ago.
I cannot predict it unless I touch it with fingers and I suggest you discuss this with your physician.
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
Is there any cream or anything I can put on it to go away
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 20 days ago.
You can try Mederma but if nothing is visible on the skin it may or may not be that useful.
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
Is there any injections I can do to get rid of it?
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
I don’t want the bump to be there
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 20 days ago.
Steroid injections theoretically can help but I do not suggest because the area is such a tender and slender area where even the injection can be considered as a trauma.
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
what do I do?
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 20 days ago.
Just leave it alone and it will gradually get better.
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
But I did not squeeze for two weeks and the swelling went down but a bump has formed. Are you sure it will go away?
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 20 days ago.
It will go away but actually it can take your months. 2 weeks is nothing.
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
I don’t think you understand the swelling of my nose was gone after two weeks then suddenly a bump has formed. The bump was not there it only formed two weeks after when I stopped the extreme squeezing Why has this bump formed? I want it to go away? How long will it take to go away?
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 20 days ago.

Can you upload the local area image for me have an idea?
