Foreign Body, Ear (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Curiosity and exploration of one's body is a natural stage of development. Teaching a child that it is not good to put anything into the ear may prevent some of these mishaps. If you suspect a child has put something in his or her ear, it is important to approach these situations in a nonjudgmental manner, so that the objects can be discovered and safely removed before complications develop.
