THINGS IN THE NOSE. Corn, Peas, Beans, Buttons, etc





Category: Accidents, Emergencies and Poisons

Children frequently
get such things in their nose and also ears. They should be removed soon
and then there will be no harm done. They have been known to remain for
years, and they have been the cause of catarrh. A small curved hair-pin
makes a good instrument to use and is always handy. Also a crochet hook,
though not so good, for it will not bend as well as the hair-pin. The
mother should sit facing a window or open door. The child should be placed
on its back with its head resting between the mother's limbs and an
assistant holds the child's hands. Its legs will be hanging down. The
light now shines into the nostril and the bent hair-pin can be slipped
over the foreign body and easily hooked out. The head must be held quiet
by the mother. The mother can do this herself, with one hand holding the
head quiet and with the other can introduce the hair-pin and remove the
object. But the position of the child must be reversed with the head
between her knees and the light shining in the nose; or place the child on
a bench or cradle or buggy, head on a pillow, and to the light. Hold the
head and legs quiet; by kneeling by the child's side, you can easily see
the object and remove it. If they are too far back, they can be pushed
over into the throat, but parents should never attempt to remove an object
in the nose they cannot see. Sometimes causing sneezing with a feather or
pepper will expel the object.
