Nosy?

A child’s nose, like that of an adult, is usually humid on its inside and therefore a perfect environment for microbial growth. Fortunately the microorganisms that line the mucous membranes of the nose are usually benign, and by simply occupying their niche they suppress the growth opportunities of any dangerous pathogens that may also be present.
