Man With Terrible Nose Pain Have Extremely Giant Booger Extracted

Our gross fascination with extraction videos is starting to extend to the realm of boogers. This YouTube video, uploaded in 2012, entitled ‘WORLDS BIGGEST BOOGER PULLED OUT OF NOSE *DISTURBING*’, was one of the first to go viral.

At the time of writing, the video has amassed over 4.4 million views and over 1000 comments.

The 45-second video shows an unnamed man being examined by a medical professional, closing his eyes as the doctor shines a light up his nostrils and attempts to pull out the source of a nasal blockage. As the doctor maneuvers an extracting tool in his nose, the man looks visibly uncomfortable, grimacing and squinting at the camera.

Eventually, the doctor is able to get a hold of an enormous slimy booger, slowly pulling out the lump of solidified mucus.

Professional to the last, the doctor quickly wipes away the slimy trail of mucus and places it in a cloth. As the size of the booger becomes apparent, the woman filming the extraction excitedly exclaims “ewww, check that out. Cool!”

However, while the patient has no interest in admiring the booger’s size, he is still incredibly relieved to have a clear nose, saying: “and you wonder why I was uncomfortable.”

“How do you feel,” asks the person behind the camera. With a smile on his face, the man replies, “a lot better on this side, my eyes are watering.” It remains unclear how long the booger had been growing in the man’s nose but, one thing’s for sure, it must have been an incredible feeling for the man to have full use of his sense of smell.

YouTube users immediately began talking about how the man’s unblocked nose must feel, with one commenter, Aidan Doyle, joking: “it was confirmed a day later that he could smell numbers.” Another YouTube commenter, Chris Gibson, was more satisfied by the video, writing: “Sure it was gross, but imagine how he feeled as they pulled it out. Must have felt amazing.”

Interestingly, mucus, commonly known as snot, plays an incredibly important part in your health. According to Spencer C. Payne, a doctor and associate professor at the University of Virginia, "Snot's purpose is to keep the lining of the nose moist.

The drier the lining, the more prone you are to infection." Many people are also surprised by the sheer amount of mucus produced by your body, with Dr. Payne adding: "Your nose and sinuses make a liter of mucous a day…When you get a cold, it goes up even higher.”

Dr. Payne is one of the most vocal experts on the dangers and myths of mucus. During an interview with the Huffington Post, Dr. Payne dispelled the popular idea that green mucus was a sign of bacterial infection, emphasizing that clear and yellow snot can still be a sign of an infection.

Finally, the booger-obsessed doctor stressed the importance of good hygiene, warning that "If someone touches it and then touches their face, they can get sick."
