Insects in the Ear in Children

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

When children play outside, especially in the warmer months, it's not unusual for insects to fly into the ear and become trapped. Sometimes, the insect dies after entering the ear; other times, it may remain alive and attempt to work its way back out of the ear. In either case, the insect can cause fear and discomfort for your child, and the insect should be removed immediately.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
