My dd (2yrs old) had grommets inserted a week ago. As she was quite hot last night, I wanted to check her temp so got the ear thermometer out put it in her ear, as i was doing this i remembered her grommets and took it out. I don't remember pushing it in very far, but now I am worried that it might have done some damage - she didnt cry or anything when I put it in there but of course paranoia has struck.
I called the ENT officd and the receptionist said the doctor was busy but she would try to answer the problem, she said as long as i didn't push it in too far it should be fine but just don't put anything else in there.
Anyone else know anything about this i.e. whether or not you can use ear thermometers (not that i would do it again but just to sure i havent stuffed up).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
