Brief Answer:
Cannot damage or change the shape of cartilage.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
After cooking the temperature of warm hands is not more than 39 degrees Celsius. This will not cause any damage to nose cartilage- no deformity or position or shape of the cartilage of the nose can be changed in this way.
I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Rubbing across the bottom of nose or rubbing side of nose with warm/heated hands after cooking or being around stove also can this cause any change in shape or position of any part of nose or entire nose? The heat from hands and rubbing nose will also not cause any change in shape or position of any part of nose or entire nose? Thanks.With heated hands
