When I first found the threadworms in my nose, they used to hide down in the hairs on the very edge of the bottom of my nose. I started swabbing coconut oil in my nose and they all died, but they took the nose hair with them! I used a dental mirror to look, and no nose hair. Will it grow back? Isn't that bad for your health not to have it?
Your question seems odd on the surface, but it's actually quite an interesting one, since few seem to know what nose hairs are good for.
My personal thoughts on this are just thoughts, and not based on any scientifical knowledge or long-term observations:
While nose hairs may be able to hold back ("filter out") a certain amount of bacteria and viruses, they are by no means dense enough to be able to do a thourough job of this.
From what I have seen from around the world, it seems that people in cooler climates have a lot more nose hair than you would find in tropical countries. What to make of this? In tropical regions they know colds and the flu as well, so I don't think there's a relation.
My dog has no visible hair inside his nose, but he is also as prone to colds and types of flus as humans. But his body temperature is higher than ours; about two degrees celsius. At the same time, his fur is dense and quite a good protection against cold weather and, to a certain degree, heat. Again, what to make of this? Is our nose hair simply here to soften the sting of the cold air during winter? To help against hypothermia? Seems farfetched, but I think it possible.
My superficial conclusion is this: in our times, nose hair does not serve any type of protection anymore. If it ever did, than our vastly improved living conditions do not require them anymore.
As I said above, these are just some quick thoughts, because I found your question really intriguing.
You have some really interesting thoughts there comsat2!
I think nose hair serve two purposes:
1) they filter out the impurities and 'hold back' the bacteria and viruses from outside (I remember someone told me to breathe through my nose in public places when the flu is around - so that the virus in the air is filtered through the hair in the nose),
2) as comsat2 said, nose hair might help to soften the sting of the cold air during winter. It is quite possible. Everybody who experiences really cold winters knows how badly the inside of the nose stings...
However, I don't think that nose hair is so important to that extent that one couldn't live without it. Don't think there is a real reason to worry! Your body will decide itself whether the hair will grow back or not. The body knows what's best for it.
The main thing is - the parasites are gone! Keep them gone forever and it will be allright!
I actually read an article cautioning people not to trim their nose hairs because they do indeed filter out foreign substances. You can't see a lot of them as they are too fine - these actually aren't even called hair, but cilia (?) or something similar to that. I imagine yours will grow back, however, and if it's just the ones at the bottom of the entrance to your nose, you have others.
I thought I had lost mine, too, but turns out the flukes in there had just covered them up with that white liquid they blow out that looks like skin when it dries. lol
I ordered humaworm three weeks ago. I have been calling and emailing both customer service and the shipping department, but have received no response. Truly terrible customer service. I never received a tracking number either, but have been charged over $200.
This is another picture of what I'm plagued with, this one particularly hurt, caused my calves and feet to swell to enormous size and was constantly oozing. Gave me a straight panic attack I'm surprised I was even able to take this picture. Can anyone identify?
I have many different lookin parasites/worms/insects infesting my body right now. I want to start a regimen from the forums but I don't know what I have going on here. Like I said this is just one, of perhaps 5 different looking parasites I've seen. Any advice what this is? I'm not familiar with the different names.
