    Bridge of nose is Sore
    jmij_solis posted:
    for the last two days the bridge of my nose has been tender.......on the inside and also to the touch on the outside and its a little swollen. Dont recall any trauma to it? also as of today my tongue is also sore in the back and hard hurts to swallow?????????
    Rod_Moser_PA_PhD responded:
    Tenderness can be due to inflammation, and inflammation can be due to infection. Now that your throat and tongue are also involved (anatomically connected to your nose), it would be in your best interest to see a medical provider. Unfortunately, it is not possible for me, or any medical provider, to be able to determine a specific cause (or a treatment) over the Internet, based solely on the brief information you have posted. It is going to require a hands-on examination to properly diagnose and treat you.
