Foreign object removal can be done gently if the object is not in too deep. Follow these steps on how to remove object from child’s nose:

Foreign object removal is usually easy if the object is small enough to be expelled by a little bit of forced exhaling. However, to prevent such instances, you must keep an eye on the child and keep any small objects away from your child.
