Insects in Ear

On 3 August, 2012 by Dr Chohan


Insects may enter the ear especialy in rainy season, whilesleeping or riding Don’t use cotton buds, tweezers, bobby pin, or any other such “tools” in your ear. That would be like asking for something much worse to happen to you.Put several drops of hydrogen peroxide or oil in the ear, let it stay till it does the bubbling thing, and then drain on a folded solid color washcloth, preferably a white or light color. Check wash cloth to see if insect came out. You may have to do this several times.

If needed, follow this with a few drops of mineral oil or baby oil, using same procedure as with h. peroxide. Repeat the process in 30 minutes if you did not have success first time. If still not successful dont get panic, contact your ENT doctor
