You might not remember if you had sustained damage to your nose and/or facial area due to early childhood physical abuse (such as from a baby sitter?). Do you suspect that you might have sustained that kind of injury? That would be in line with the articles Didi has cited.
Did you have any birth injuries? Were you a forceps delivery? I'm not trying to embarass you. I definitely did have birth injuries. My Mother was in great pain and I was just not coming out. The scenario is that the mother screams and the Dr. reaches in with a big pair of tongs shaped to grab the baby behind the head and pull it out. He can't really see what he's doing and the baby is slippery and squirming and the mother is screaming and so he inadvertantly grabs the baby's face and starts pulling. The baby sustains damage to the facial area or to the cranium. At birth the Dr. reassures the mother that these things sometimes happen and that they will be self-correcting. Indeed, the bones in the baby's scull are cartilagenous and they can move about a bit without damaging the brain.
