Fast forward 4 or 5 years and he's having all kinds of sinus issues - infections, nosebleeds for no reason, etc... So the docs eventually do an X-ray and lo and behold, there's this foreign object stuck in his upper nasal passage, messing everything up.
A nasty surgery later and he had himself this little rock souvenir to remind him not to stick sht up his nose anymore...
Should I be worried if my little boy can't keep his finger out of there?
I actually did a study in college for psyc class regarding Alzheimers, I learned that habitual nose picking can be attributed to Alzheimers. I did not elaborate on the aspect of booger eating.
