I broke my nose a while back (4 months ago) and its not fully healed. still hurts if pressed or bumped and swells if this happens. I havn't been in the water since then and am now home for chirstmas break (3 weeks in miami) I have many opportunities to freedive in the keys. Is there a way to equalize w/o putting trauma on my nose. without pinching the nostrils? is there a way to plug them maybe? or a way to equalize without even doing so. Is there maybe some kind of mask I could use that doesn't cover my nose or touch it? Some times i can equalize w/o pinching the nose but other times the pressure is to great or i'm to plugged up and i must pinch it and force air.
