Why do pimples (zits) form inside the nose? Shouldn’t our nose be resistant to pimples, since it’s constantly sucking in dirt and other particles?


It’s a lot more uncommon than in other parts of the body and face, so what’s the reason it happens when it happens?

Pimples, or zits, form when a pore in your skin becomes clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. This can happen anywhere on your body, including inside your nose. Your nose may be more prone to pimples because it has a lot of oil-producing glands, and these glands can become clogged easily. Additionally, the warm, moist environment inside your nose may create a breeding ground for bacteria. So, while your nose does help to filter out dirt and other particles, it can still develop pimples.
