Translation of Hakeem Saeed’s “Dehati Mualij”

This Remedy # 2: If an Insect Enters the Ear; of a child or elder is the second entry in our translation of Hakeem Saeed’s “Dehati Mualij”. This post is the translation of the second most common accident in the rural areas as generally people are sleeping in the open to avoid the hot weather and in winter also the houses and rooms are not well protected from the insects.

For each Remedy we translate we will scan the relevant original page and insert the photograph here for your perusal. The First Chapter of the Book focuses on Accidents that occur in or around the household.

Remedy # 2: If an Insect Enters the Ear

If an Insect Enters the Ear, serious damage can happen to the person if the insect is not extracted from the ear immediately. Sometimes it dies inside or goes deep inside the ear.

What to do?

Take mustard oil and put two or three drops of oil in the affected ear. Then turn the affected ear downside so that the oil comes out. Hopefully the insect will come out as well. If it does not come out then use a syringe and fill it with Luke warm water and keeping it downside wash the ear with this water. This will definitely work.  After washing the ear keep the ear downside so that all the water comes out of the ear.

If the mustard oil is not available then you can also use Hydrogen per oxide and can pour two to three drops of it in the ear to extract the insect. First pour the drops in the ear and then turn the ear downside so that the insect comes out with the hydrogen per oxide.
