How can an allergic reaction only affect my nose?

It may not be.: You may be just more symptomatic in that area. There may be other symptoms you are not aware of. Itchy eyes, throat and palate? Itchy skin. Post nasal drainage? The nose is most commonly involved because the allergen is coming in direct contact with the nasal mucosa and causing the reaction.

Irritation: This is most likely an irritation from blowing your nose and wiping it rather than an allergic reaction.
