Katelyn Powell of Hemet said three different doctors determined her 5-year-old daughter, Khloe Russell, was suffering from sinus infections and prescribed antibiotics.
5-yr-old girl sneezed safety pin out of her nose after suffering from running nose for 6-month
A 5-year-old girl who suffered a mysterious runny nose for 6 months finally managed to blow out the cause: a 1.5-inch-long safety pin.
"About six months ago, her nose just started [running] out of this one side. Green, green, green constantly and it stunk," Powell told KABC-TV.
Her mother said they visited a doctor and a dentist. It still did not stop
The mother said the answer finally came last weekend when her brother, Khloe's uncle, had the girl blow her nose.
"My brother was like, 'Your nose, it's disgusting. Blow your nose, blow your nose.' And she blows it and out comes the safety pin," Powell said.
She sneeze out the pin, measuring about 1.5 inches long. It was black and partially disintegrated.
"It was a huge object. It was bigger than her nose," Powell said.
"We were horrified. I was like, 'Did you put this up there?' She did, but she forgot to tell me."
Powell says Khloe is feeling much better since the pin came out of her nose.
