    Insect in Ear

    Some of you may know this but I had no idea.

    If your child has an insect in his/her ear (in the case of today Kameron) you can fill the ear full of Olive Oil as this will drown the insect and the oil will come out naturally bringing the insect with it.

    So there you go

    Can I ask how you knew he had an insect in his ear? Was his ear irritating the life out of him??

    Poor little Kam!!

    Thanks girls. Kam is great you would never had known. How it happened is he likes to lay down on his side outside and play with his cars, so I am assuming he laid down upon an ant and it crawled on in.
