Handling Of The Foreign Entry Of Objects?
In the morning I want to ask, if the skin of a bird’s feed seed goes into the ear, will it be destroyed inside, is the size of half of the seed? thank you
Thank you for the question.
The ear, in contrast to the gastrointestinal tract, does not have the ability to digest foreign material that enters it. Therefore, if there is a bird feed seed shell that enters the ear, then this can make the ears inflamed, so that it feels itchy, painful, swollen, secretes excess, even to the point of hearing loss.
This condition should be checked directly to a doctor or ENT doctor before causing serious complications. Usually, doctors simply inspect your ear with a special instrument (otoscope) to determine the best management. As for the treatment that is given later can vary, can be done manually extraction, given drugs, or also other therapeutic modalities.
In the meantime, don't panic yet. Do not carelessly put water or any object in your ear. Avoid poking your ears with cotton buds, fingers, and other tools so as not to cause inflammation in the ear that is getting more intense.
Hope this helps ...
