In brief: Many

Dry nose and scabbing can be due to excessive picking at nose, allergies, bacterial infections, and others.
Avoid picking the nose, use saline nasal sprays, humidification, a small amount of vaseline in the nose and consider the use of intranasal antibiotics. You may need to see your pcp or ENT for evaluation. Humidification, humidification, humidification is the answer. Lots of saline spray!

In brief: Gentle picking is OK

Unlikely to cause damage if done gently.
Also OK to remove nasal hair. Wetting finger before picking also OK. Might benefit from a little vaseline after picking. Certainly consult with your Dr. if problem seems excessive
