Hello, Epistaxis or bleeding from the nose is very common after trauma or nose injury. It is important to rule out any fractures and dislocations. So my sincere advice would be to consult an ENT specialist and get an x-ray nose and paranasal sinuses done. Till then keep the head level elevated and keep a handkerchief to stop bleeding. But it is mandatory to consult a doctor soon because the bleeding needs medical management. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
