An NHS doctor has warned that pulling out your nose hairs can cause a life-threatening medical condition.

 

In a video he uploaded on his Instagram account, Dr Karan Rajan warned you should “never pull out your nose hairs”.

Explaining the hidden danger of pulling out nose hairs, he said: “You have two types of nose hairs.

 

“You have microscopic cilia, these filter mucus and send it to the back of the throat where it ends up in the stomach, and vibrissae, the big ones you want to yank out.”

 

The doctor told people not to pull out their thick vibrissae nose hairs, even if they find them unsightly, and instead opt for a trim.

 

He said: “These [nose hairs]keep out large particles from making it into the back of the nose.
