I always blamed the nose itch on pollen.

It's only when I wear my helmet. Inside and outside of nose.

I'm pegging you for a silk scarf kind of fella?

There is thy gold, worse poison to men's souls,
Doing more murders in this loathsome world,
Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell.
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none.

Maybe you're allergic to the material in the helmet? My itch only started after I started rubbing my nose with wearing a particular pair of gloves that I had re-dyed, I thought it was either pollen or allergy to the dye. Before that I thought it was static charge from being behind a windshield.

I had an HJC helmet that would make my head itch, it was horrible. I thought it was just the heat and/or long distance/time I was wearing it. I replaced it with a Shoei and the itch was gone!

The itchy nose thing is easy - just trim your nostril hair.

Rush with hush, (and clunks).

Unless that isn't the issue...as in my case it's a vibration or frequency issue not a hair issue.

Science has proven that when your nose is unreachable, like inside a helmet, or when your hands are really dirty, your nose will itch.
Cheap panty hose type skull caps are pretty comfortable.

Getting rid of nose and ear hair, shortening the mustache, and shaving my head make for a better ride. A pedicure isn't required,,,,,, but it helps.
Best.

Darryl - Thanks for all you do!

Cortozone cream is the only think that helps me.

The nose thing is a small bit of air inside your helmet.... usually. It can be a frequency/vibration issue as well.
