You can get cell death, open sores, and even gangrene in the nasal cavity. This is what cocaine abusers get & often even bone death with the nasal septum (bone & cartilage) dying. This bone often doesn’t come back. If you want to take the chance of doing this to your tender lining of your nose and destroying your nose go right ahead.
