thanks for reply but can you explain... because i thought if you keep pulling on a skin, the skin is elastic and when you pull it enough it will eventually stretch?

Re: Picking your NOse makes it wider?

Well I have never experienced stretching of the skin and have had sinus problems for a long time. When it dries in there I just have to get it out. It's never effected the shape of my nose. I'm 36 now and it just doesn't seem to effect the shape of the nose or nostrils.
