Urgent Care Orlando-Same Day Appointment-Cotton in the Ear

Urgent Care Orlando in Dr. Phillips area is staffed with the board certified doctor. We have seen a patient with the complaints of cotton  stuck in the ear and unable to hear. The patient was cleaning the ear with q tip and cotton part came off. When the patient tried to take it out, he pushed it inside further. Dr. Usha Jain examined the patient and took the cotton out with the special instrument.  The patient pushed it further in and that made it difficult to get it out.

Foreign body in the ear should be removed by the doctor and not by the patient. When the patients try to remove  by themselves it can cause it to be impacted further in the canal and also can cause the damage of the drum.
