Ok! I have a bug in my ear, now what?
The first thing is to stay calm! If you or someone with you can see the bug, can you coax it out? Sometimes flushing the ear helps to coax the insect out. If you are unable to remove it, it is time to call us.
What is the most common insect in my ear?
Just about any bug can crawl into your ear, although Cockroaches are at the top of the list. They don’t crawl into your ear to hurt you. We can remove the insect at the office.
Stay calm, if you get overly nervous it will bleed more. Don’t lie down, sit up. It might help to lean forward. Pinch your nose closed for a few minutes to see if it will restrict the bleeding. If it does not stop. Its time to call us.
My child put something up their nose

My nose hurts, and I don’t have a cold
Our advice would be to call for an appointment. Sometimes this could be just allergies, or trauma to the nose. The problem isn’t always just the sinuses themselves. Although there are many common sinus problems and nasal pulps can also affect anyone.
A sore throat, scratchiness or irritation is usually caused by a viral infection and resolves itself on its own. If for some reason it persists over time or there is difficulty in breathing, or swallowing. Get it checked right away.
