Ds age 6 has said he has put a small pebble up his nose, he cant feel it and we can't see it - what can we do?

A&E or walk in centre. If you are sure he really has put one up there and isn't pretending......

A&E - my sister did this with a small bead and her ear at a similar age. Can be quite dangerous if left.

IF it was small, no reason why he would feel it or you would see it - especially if it's far up.

I would go A&E as it's the weekend. Be prepared for a long wait though sat night sad

Yeap A&E,
ds recently told me he had put a piece of paper up his nose I was able to get a bit of it and pull it down,
it was a bloody big sticker and in the process of going up his nose it crumpled down into a ball shape

Thank you all for your replies, took him to A & E, didn't get seen til 2 in the morning. They couldn't see anything up there so sent us home. Finally got in at 3.30am, he is certain it went up his nose and he doesn't usually lie. So just keeping an eye on him!
