Q.

possible broken nose

my child had a head on collision this morning. her nose is swollen on both sides towards the top of the nose. Not sore unless she crunches her nose up. No bleeding. Do I need to worry ? what signs must I look for in day or two to make me worry

Your little girl may well have broken her nose. She should be seen by an ENT specialist.
