Expert Answer:

  • The nose has many very important functions in the body.
  • It warms, humidifies and purifies the air we breathe.
  • The mucous membrane of the nose protects airways against external environment by filtering particles present in the air.
  • The small nose hairs on the mucous membrane direct these impurities toward the throat and stomach. Sneezing is another way of getting rid of impurities.
  • Proper nasal hygiene helps the mucous membrane protect the body.
  • The nose also helps to project our voice and is responsible for the sense of smell.
  • It is important to keep our nose clean so that all these functions are smoothly carried out.
