If a child's nose has been injured and it's out of alignment, so it's crooked, that would be a reason to see your doctor especially if it hasn't corrected itself by four days. You have about ten days to set a broken nose and make it straight; afterwards it gets very hard to straighten it out. You would also want to see your doctor if there is any continued bleeding from the nose, or any fluid coming from the nose that is clear. It's really important for your doctor to look inside your child's nose if it has been injured, and make sure that none of the structures inside have been damaged, because those would need to be corrected by a specialist right away.
