Never Try Removing This From Your Nose, See Why

Most people find it uncomfortable to have hairs in their nose. Everything on this earth had it's pros and cons. You can choose to trim the surface when it comes out to openly but don't dare trim it on the inside else you'll be in great danger.

The air we breathe actually has tiny micro particles moving to-and-fro, some of which are visible and can be seen with the naked and some of which are invisible and can be seen only with a microscope.

Without much ado, let's go straight to the point. Trimming or removing the hair in the nose has adverse effects on the individual exposing him or her to numerous infections.

The purpose of the hair is to trap dust, dirt, bacteria and other pathogens (disease producing agent) that may eventually cause harm to the human body.

Also, if you pluck those hairs, germs and particles near the follicles can get inside and cause an infection. This happens because the same veins that carry blood out of the nose meet up with veins that carry blood out from the brain as well.

If those germs make it all the way back there, it could lead to conditions like meningitis (in which the protective membranes on the spinal cord and brain become inflamed) or brain abscess (another type of inflammation and swelling that happens in the brain, related to an infection).

These types of infections are rare, but they can cause serious trouble for people with weakened immune systems. And, depending on the infection type (bacterial meningitis, for example), the infections can be extreme and in some cases deadly.

In a nut shell, I'll advise you refrain from trimming your nose hair. Research indicates that individuals who trim their nose hair have a higher chance of suffering from asthma.
