Overcoming The Nose Of 3-year-old Children Possessed By A Foreign Body?
I want to ask, my child is 3 years old, his nose has been broken by a rigid plastic toy, about 1cm long, green. I have taken him to the RST ENT Prof. Nizar, for the action taken by the object, but it did not work either because my son rebelled crying so the doctor had difficulty handling it. Doctors recommend that the child be anesthetized and vacuum, but the costs are quite expensive. What’s the solution?
Hello Vivi, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Rio will try to answer your question.
Complaints of foreign objects in the nose or known as the corpus alienum are very common in children. Foreign objects in the nose if left unchecked can interfere with the child's breathing, injury can even lead to infection.
Handling foreign objects in the nose there is no other way but to remove these objects from the nose. But it is difficult if experienced by children, sometimes in the process of taking it can cause pain or the child will be afraid, anxious and fussy so it is very difficult and ineffective to take the foreign object. In taking these foreign objects must be carefully and in a calm state because it is feared to hurt the nasal cavity area.
An alternative way to make a child easy to retrieve a foreign object is by the anesthetic procedure. It requires no small cost. Currently quite a lot of health insurance is available as one of them is health insurance recommended by the government. If you have insurance, then this treatment should use insurance only. But if it is not possible, the way is to return to consult an ENT doctor and hold your child tightly when taking the foreign object. Especially holding the body and head.
That's all the answers I can give.
Thank you :)
