Don't put anything on his hand that he can put it in his nose. You can seriously hurt the breathing method in his nose. And it is really really hurt anyway. He picks his nose because he gets attention when he does. More attention, more picking. And when it develops as a habit he does it unconscious after a time. So what you have to do is develop another habit instead of this one. And they can pick their nose when they are bored as well. So when he is home, in front of the tv doing nothing than try to entertain his hands: like give him a paper to draw, or give him some toys to push around, etc. When he doesn't think about the nose picking he won't do it. When he does it, do not show any interests especially if he picks his nose until it bleeds. Just go to him, clean him up, put him back to play. But do not say anything or make a scene. If you give him attention he will do it and it will get worse.
