My 5 yr old stuck a blueberry up hs nose. Do I need to take him to the ER?
My son stuck a blueberry up his nose and it's WAY up there....I can see it with a flashlight, but it's like up in the part of his nose where the bone is, not in the cartilege area. We've tried closing the other nostril and blowing it out, and I tried to make him sniff pepper so he would sneeze, but it didn't work. Do I need to take him to the ER? I don't know what to do!
Don't freak out. The heat of his body will gradually deteriorate the berry. Its not toxic and the acidity of the berry will not damage his nose. The berry will soften and come out naturally. If you put him to bed the berry will be out in the morning. But... Blue berry stains are a pain. If it is still stuck tomorrow go to the Doc. Luck with this. Remember, Its just a berry.
