The trigger for this irritation can be many things. Allergies, nasal mucus that becomes contaminated with skin germs, the debris off your fingers, etc. A habit of itching this can also lead to a cycle of itch/scratch/itch. Newly healing skin tents to be fair because the pigment producing cells in the deeper layers take time to even up skin tome.
