Does Your Nose Grow With Age?
Yes,Nose and Ears continues to grow as we age.
This is because our nose and ears are made of a plastic-like stuff called cartilage which continues to grow until the day we die unlike bones which stop growing after puberty.
The nose consists of:
*external meatus - triangular-shaped projection in the center of the face
*external nostrils - two chambers divided by the septum
*septum - made up primarily of cartilage and bone and covered by mucous membranes. The cartilage also gives shape and support to the outer part of the nose.
*nasal passages - passages that are lined with mucous membranes and tiny hairs (cilia) that help to filter the air
*sinuses - four pairs of air-filled cavities that are also lined with mucous membranes
It can spread germs and cause bloody noses.So it is important not to pick your nose.
