Consequences of picking your nose too much?
« on: July 30, 2012, 01:51:57 PM »
I do it out of habit, but sometimes I get blood in my boogers. Is it from picking too much? I've never had a nosebleed in my life. It mainly happens if my nostril is really dry. It's just my right nostril. I'm too scared to google

Is it normal?

If I leave my nose nothing happens it only happens when I pick, otherwise it doesn't bleed or anything.

You're probably just irritating the lining of your nostril by poking around in there.  My advice: do what you can to break the habit.  I really, really, really think you have nothing to worry about.

I get blood in my nose all the time - mostly from weather changes and dryness.  Use a saline rinse daily and it will help it.

Keep your fingers out of your nose for nothing more than cleanliness - our noses carry alot of bacteria!

You pick ANYTHING and it will bleed. Now wash your hands and quit! It's bad for your nose and bad for the health of you and everyone in your home.

You're scratching the inside of your nose.  It won't cause any real harm, but it's sure not doing you any good, so why give yourself something else to worry about?
