Foreign Body in the Nose

Foreign Body in the Nose | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What can be done to prevent the condition?

People should not put any objects into the nose. Young children should not be allowed to play with small objects.

Children should be encouraged to let parents know right away if they do get something stuck in the nose or throat. This will allow the object to be removed immediately, before swelling or infection occurs.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

Generally, there are no long-term effects. If the nose is severely injured, reconstructive surgery may be required.

What are the risks to others?

A foreign body in the nose is not contagious and poses no risk to others.
