Ear foreign bodies


There are two types - living and non-living foreign bodies. Inanimate - small objects (buttons, beads, peas, seeds, etc.) often do not cause any pain. Independently extracting them is strictly prohibited, since any attempts will only contribute to further pushing deep into the ear canal.
Living foreign bodies (bugs, cockroaches, midges, flies, etc.) cause unpleasant subjective sensations - a sense of drilling, burning. In this case, it is necessary to fill the ear canal with liquid oil, alcohol, water, and make the victim lie for a few minutes on the healthy side. The insect quickly perishes. After the disappearance of unpleasant sensations in the ear, you must lie down on the sore side. Often, a foreign body is removed along with the liquid. If it is left in the ear, you should consult a otolaryngologist.
