Itchy nose is one of the most annoying things to deal with. Fortunately, several remedies are available to rescue you off this. But, as the old wives tales say, it's an omen. But wait! Is it really as bad as they say? Read on to find out.
You get an itch when your skin is irritated by some external sources.
Allergies are a common cause of pruritus. So is it possible that us 'nose scratchers' are allergic to something in our food?
Your immune system becomes activated when you eat something (edible) you are allergic to.
'Anaphylaxis' is the worst type of allergic reaction and it can turn out to be lethal. Histamine goes berserk, and it disturbs the body functioning. Lips and eyes swell followed by nausea, skin rashes, wheezing, and difficulty in breathing.
Answer: Eating Histamine. Soy sauce, Chinese Food, red wine, mature cheese, pizzas, cured hams, beer, tomato puree, fish, and shellfish.
Old wives tales suggest that an itchy nose signifies the arrival of a guest or a mail/letter.
...or you will find yourself in a middle of an argument.
...perhaps even spread rumors about you, or that you are going to receive money soon.
