Foreign Body in the Nose Treatment
There are techniques that can be used at home to remove a foreign object from the nose. However, it's advisable to seek medical help if the object is lodged far up in the nose or if it may be pushed farther up the nasal cavity if removal is attempted. Children present a problem because they may be somewhat uncooperative. If medical care is sought to remove the object, give nothing to drink or eat to the person as sedation may be necessary.
