Medicine For Foreign Object In The Nose
No: The problem with trying to take it out yourself is that the narrowest part of the nasal passage is right past the nostril... It's very easy to push it back farther to the point of "no return" and risk your child aspirating the object. Nasal foreign bodies are generally not emergencies and can be seen in clinic as soon as possible. The er doc can traumatize your child and cause bleeding. See an ent. ...Read more
If a child sticks a foreign object up their nose, how long will it take for them to stop breathing and die if it is not removed?
Blow it out: For young children. Occlude the non-affected bare, place your mouth over theirs with a good seal and give a quick "puff" of breath. This often will blow the object out. Be warned that the object and mucous may hit you in the face when you do this. For older kids or adults, simply attempt to blow it out by blowing the nose. If unable to do this then seek medical care. ...Read more

I would never: You can wet a Q-tip and place the wet end near the object & then gently tease it off the eye. If it will not move, you need to go to an urgent care clinic so they can extract it. An alternative might be using a big bottle of artificial tears to squirt at/flush the object. You cannot control the flow or direction of a showerhead & are likely to do more harm than good. ...Read more

You can use pain relievers like Tylenol (acetaminophen) or NSAID’s. Rest A LOT!

Nose Caving In: Although I have never personally witnessed this result of chronically snorting cocaine, it certainly makes sense. Cocaine is a powerful constrictor of blood vessels. Repeated use will eventually result in nasal tissue being cut off from adequate blood supply. This will result in cellular death so there will be less and less tissue between the nostrils which could result in a nasal septum cave-in. ...Read more
Nasal discharge: First, I would recommend an over-the-counter antihistamine. Nasal steroids can be helpful, too, but these require a prescription.
