First time trimming my nose hair. Feel sick a little after. How long does it take to grow them back. And what can I do to prevent any infection until my hair's grows back.

The older you get the faster nose hairs grow. Trimming them should not cause infection. Plucking may cause infection.

Why on earth would you do that? Nose hairs are there for a reason. If you look it up, they are the body's first line of defense against infections, and IMO that's why we have more nose hair as we age and our immune system is more challenged. They are also beneficial in several other ways.

Also, I would think it was totally weird to be talking to someone from a certain angle and notice they had completely naked inner nostrils. I occasionally trim any that extend outside the nostril, but that's it.

I have more ear hair as I've aged. Inner, outer, and around the perimeter.


Wonder what that means?

Did you just trim the spiders legs dangling out your nose (which is what you are meant to do if you don't want them showing) or did you get up inside the nose (where no=-one can see anyway) and remove them? If the latter - I don't know why you would do such a thing. Its there for a reason (although not all hair is "there for a reason)

Ears can get bigger too as we age - cartilage keeps on adding. More square surface for those odd hairs.

Old joke: "As I've gotten older, I have less hair growing ON my head and more hair growing OUT OF my head!"

Amazon has plenty of inexpensive battery operated devices just for this, to safely shorten overgrown nose or ear hairs without removing them at the skin level. Do this occasionally to avoid the Cave Man (or woman) look.

Stuff should be moderately controlled and not popping out everywhere, IMO.
