popcorn seed stuck in ear canal

Customer Question

5yr old 45 pounds, has kernel stuck in her ear canal

Please don't use water or any other liquid to try to get the kernel out. It will swell and lodge even tighter in the ear cnal. You will probably have to take her to an urgent care center or ER to have the object removed. Good luck.
