Help! I have a nose picker. How do I make it stop?

It's a funny question, but I really need to get him to stop. He's just turned 3 this month and just started to pick his nose recently. Unfortunately, it's also cold season. He will NOT use a tissue. When I get a tissue and bring it to him, he runs. I really haven't tried any form of punishment because it just doesn't seem like a "punishable" offense, but it really does need to stop or no one will want their kids to play with him. So, I don't know what I do. I've tried explaining to him its rude and I tell him to stop and/or use a tissue every time I catch him. What else can I do? Any suggestions. Should I start giving him time outs for it? What do you wise ladies think?

There is a little boy in my preK class that picks his nose till it bleeds. His mom uses the thing you put over the finger so it makes the finger to big to fit in the nose.

Other than that I have no advice, GL and

Thanks. It's good to know there is something like that. Thank God it's not that extreme at this point, no bleeding or rawness or anything like that.

Anyone else have any tips?
