Objeto extraño en el oído

Los niños con frecuencia se colocan objetos en los oídos que se pueden clavar en el canal auditivo. Es importante extraer el objeto en estos casos, dado que es muy probable que se presente infección. En la mayoría de los casos, el médico necesitará utilizar instrumentos especiales para examinar el oído y extraer el objeto extraño en forma segura.
