I had my surgery two years ago.The first year of healing I didn't touch it a lot to let it heal properly.But this year,I started to get more and more blackheads because of oily tip.I can't resist squeezing them.I squeeze them twice a week and then let my nose heal for few days,and then squeeze again.It never hurts and I didn't break anything but my nose gets really red and bulbous.I decided to stop because I am afraid I will harm my nose permanently.Do You think I have already done some damage?

Nose Skin Care
After two years, it is doubtful that you have caused any structural damage to the structure of your nose. But I advise you to contact your surgeon or a dermatologist to discuss a good skin care regimen.
