The temperature of: your nose has nothing to do with your overall health. Your nose may feel cool to the touch b/c it sticks out from your face and radiates heat into the environment more than other parts of your body. If your hands are warmer than your nose, this may increase the perception that your nose is cold. Also, blood flow to the outside of your nose is relatively scant, making it harder to keep warm.
