Piece of garlic stuck in ear.

  1. 11 years ago


    I read on a few sites and in my book that putting a thiin slice of garlic in an infected ear could cure it.

    Unfourtunetly, now its burning like crazy and I can't get it out.

    Can you tell me what to do please!

    Hello Drea,

    Any physician, physician's assistant, or nurse practitioner can help you by "flushing" your ear for you. If that doesn't work, they'll also have the proper tools necessary to physically remove the garlic. Please don't try to do it at home.

    Hello Bernice,

    If anything has moved farther into your ear canal while trying to remove it at home, you need to go to an immediate care facility, emergency room or your medical doctor to have it removed properly and completely.
