Have you tried blowing through the other nostril or blocking the other nostril and blowing through the mouth. This is what DH did for our DD when she got a pea stuck up her nose. This was after a nurse tried to get it out with a pair of scissors
Littleducks, is it an emergency then would you say? What could actually happen? I've been trying to google but not alot of information, just that the item will usually begin to rot if left long enough so does need removing unless the child sneezes it out.
Mistymoo, I haven't tried blowing it out, I think I would rather a doctor do this, I would be worried about hurting him. The scissors idea sounds a bit stupid doesn't it? There is no way I would let someone rummage up there with tweezers, without DS being sedated, it would be a bit pointless as I can't see the corn. So, did yu just make a doctor's appointment then?
My ds2 did this, took to dr and they couldn't get it out. Dr told me we had to take to a&e as it could get into his lungs and cause infection etc. A&E got it out via the blowing method but said not to do it unless in a&e as it can cause problems. I went straight away btw, ds2 was 2.
JodieO, that is what I was worried about- I'll take him to A&E, that is what the surgery said too.
Just having a mini row with DP who won't come out of work to take us, meaning I will have to get 4 buses in the sodding rain having never been on a bus with DS ever. I'm 6mths pregnant too Dreading it.
I took DD to Minor injuries recently with a dried pea up her nose. As it was so far up and they could not see it they were not allowed to poke around to find it. I had to take her to another hospital with Paediatric ENT staff which was a faf after already waiting in one waiting roon. Anyway, after more waiting they eventually got it out with a hoover device after not succeeding with long tweezers. They did say though that I had to take her right away in case it dislodged the wrong way so they did treat it as quite important.
Thanks Meggriffin. I have just got back from A&E, bloody nightmare, 3 people looked up his nose, resulting in an hysterical baby each and every time, no-one could see anything. As I'm not a 100% whether it's there or not they have told me to just keep an eye on him for sign of infection.
