A tooth is found stuck in a child's ear after three years.
Usually memories of losing teeth bring back nostalgic thoughts. But that might not be the case for one child.
An 8-year-old boy had been having troubles with a consistently runny nose. He was sent to an allergy specialist, who concluded that his sinuses were very inflamed. The reason behind the medical problems was surprising, as a tooth had been lodged in the child’s ear canal. Apparently it all began when the boy had pulled out his tooth and placed it under his pillow.
He then reportedly woke up and told his parents that the tooth was stuck in his ear, but they just told him it was a nightmare.
The next morning the tooth could not be found and eventually it was long forgotten about. The child originally lost that tooth at the age of five, meaning that it had been stuck in his ear for an astounding three years.
Earlier this year, a 6-year-old, Utah boy had a LEGO piece resembling a tire removed from his nose, after the toy had been stuck there for an estimated three years! Isaak Lasson didn’t recall putting the LEGO in his nose, but his parents claimed that he began suffering from sinus problems when he was three years old.
