How do you get a foreign body out of your ear?

In brief: Variety of methods

If object does not absorb water try the direct flush method in the shower. Do not try this with objects that could expand when wet.
If object is a bug you may try floating it out with a few drops of oil. If object is visible and you feel safe it is possible to grab it with tweezers. This requires a steady hand and ear. If object is really wedged then visit your local practitioner.

In brief: Family practice

Depends how deep it is.
If seen someone may be able to grab it. However i would recommend having a dr remove it.
