Today, I was teaching my two year old daughter how to take a person's temperature. While I was sitting down, she came up behind me and shoved the thermometer in my ear hard. Now I can't hear out of my right ear, and I'm in excruciating pain. FML

10 36 you 2 are missing the point. No matter what was taught an object small enough to enter the ear should never be laying around for a 2 year old to play with. Thank God it was your ear and not hers OP! YDI


Ok similar thing had happened to me. Most likely your eardrum is cut or bruised. Mine was cut. If you don't want to pay for it, wait about 2-4 weeks for it to heal. If it starts bleeding see a doctor immediately. For the meanwhile, DON'T put anything in the ear(obviously) and don't even touch it. If you wake up with a really sore ear, see a doctor. Good luck.

This sounds like the one from a while back when the toddler tried to clean her dad's ear with a cotton swab or something of that nature. That sucks, but YDI for leaving the thermometer where she could get to it while you weren't looking.

13 never said op should be glad it was in the ear, just that she herself was. maybe she didn't want to read about thermometers piercing the anal sphincter, or maybe she's a freak who wants the op to be in pain(: but she might just be slightly unintelligent/uninformed in that comment
