Ear foreign body removal

Ear foreign body removal

First of all, removing a foreign body from the ear may be necessary for young children, who may accidentally place various small objects in the ear canal, such as beads, parts of toys, peas, and so on. Children still do not understand the full danger of such games and accidentally clog the ear canal.

However, adults may also find themselves in a situation where it is impossible to remove a foreign body from the ear on their own and it is necessary to seek the help of an otolaryngologist. Insects, algae while swimming in ponds, random objects if careless and so on can penetrate into the ears.

Why you need to remove foreign objects from your ear and how to avoid problems

After a foreign object enters the ear, the hearing aid is blocked, therefore, hearing problems arise. However, this is not the biggest danger. If the eardrum or ear canal is damaged by a foreign body in the ear, inflammation can occur.

In addition, otitis media and other ear complications may develop.

Parental control is required to prevent children from placing objects in their ears. Children should not be allowed to play with small objects that can fall not only in the ears, but also in the nasal passage or pharynx, which is much more dangerous.

For adults, doctors recommend refusing to clean the ears with cotton swabs. These hygiene items can be used to clean the ears, but cannot be used to clean the ear canals.
