I just swallowed a small piece of sharp chicken bone. I ate a piece of bread and milk with oats to help soften it as it goes down. Should I induce vomiting or let it pass
Hello from JA
Let it pass.
The vast majority of these simply go through.
If you induce vomiting you might actually cause problems.

If you have any pain or any continuing problems, then I would go to the ER. Not self treatment.
Use reply to let me know if you have further questions.
Please do not forget a positive rating.
