What is the origin of the phrase . . . . . .?

Posted by Pete Ridler on December 10, 2000

Does anybody out there have the origin of the phrase "It's no skin off my nose".

We all use it and are familiar with the meaning, but I am blessed if I can find the origin!!

Also, why do none of us ever say "No way, that will be some skin from my nose!!"

All ideas welcome please,

regards,
