How To Remove Piece Of Food Stuck In Nasal Cavity?

I have had a piece of food stuck in my nasal cavity for three days and it is beginning to cause me to have sore throat and making my nose very stuffy. I have tried the neti pot several times and blown my nose continuously. How can I fix this, it is driving me crazy!

Hi,

Foreign bodies stuck in the nasal cavity should not be left there for long. There is a high chance of infection especially if it is a organic foreign body (e.g. food). I suggest that you consult your ENT specialist without much delay and get it removed.

Regards,
Dr. Prasad
