Could Lightly Picking Nose at 2months Post Rhinoplasty Damage Results?

I'm now 4months post op and since 2months post op I have been cleaning my nose with my finger.. I know I shouldn't but its very uncomfortable when its full of stuff and makes it harder to breathe, boogies tend to cling onto the scar tissue lumps inside.. I do this maybe every other day.. I don't see any changes but I feel very guilty and I'm worried I could have done something?
