The insect does not come out
If the insect in ear does not come out or is not visible, seek medical assistance. Doctors are better equipped with tools to remove the pest.
Doctors will usually prescribe otic antibiotic drops after foreign body (insect) removal to prevent the onset or progression of infection.
The oil stays in the ear
If the insect is still in your ear after trying to flush it out, seek help from your doctor to remove both the insect and the oil.
If the insect is not lodged in the ear and it can be removed safely using tweezers or oil, you may attempt to remove it. However, to avoid further complications due to the ear canal’s sensitivity, it is still best to seek a doctor’s help as they have the proper tools and expertise to manage the situation.
