Baby’s Neck Becomes Red And Swollen, Doctors Find A Feather Sticking Out

If you are parents, you know that sometimes unexpected accidents happen even when you are paying close and caring attention.

It all started when new parents, Aaron and Emma Washington noticed a strange pimple on their infant daughter’s face. Assuming it would go away on its own, they didn’t worry and ignored it a first.

However, the pimple just kept growing and they realized something was really wrong.

The little girl’s face was swollen up to a size of a golf ball on one side when they arrived at the doctor’s office. The doctor had never seen anything like it.

At first, he thought it was an infection, then he realized it was more serious.

He poked around and suddenly began pulling something out. Everyone was stunned when they realized that it was a feather that was slowly exiting the child’s face.

They are not sure how the seven-month-old child ended up with a feather in her face. It could’ve been by inhaling it from a comforter. It likely began to pierce through her cheek as a way of her body rejecting the foreign object. It ended up causing a pimple-like inflamed shape in her cheek.

The Importance Of Your Child’s Safety

You don’t want your child to end up in similar accidents.

To keep your child safe:

  • Keep potentially dangerous objects locked away
  • Keep small objects away from the child
  • Never let your child eat without supervision
  • Watch out for magnets, cords, strings, ties and ribbons
  • Never use strings or ribbons on your child’s toy or pacifier
  • Pay close attention to your child
