do I tell him to suffer or go to MIU?

Don't try to get it out yourself!
I would ring for advice - there is an easy way to get stuff out but I can't remember what it is (helpful I know) Just don't touch it yourself!

I haven't! we've tried nose blowing, but he keeps trying to use his finger to move it, he is 4.

he isn't in pain, just uncomfy.

Hope it helps...

DD got a bead up her nose many years ago. Did have to go to A&E in the end, but all sorted very quickly.
