Why is it ill advised to blow your nose when it’s injured/broken ?

In: Biology

Because blowing your nose puts a lot of pressure on it and it can make the break worse. It is essentially the same reason why you should never move someone who has taken a hard fall. If they have a break in their neck and their spine, there is a good chance you will end up making it worse while trying to help.
