What is in our ear potentially?  I'd see your doctor pronto if you are unable to remove it! This article makes it sound like no big deal though https://www.emedicinehealth.com/foreign_body_ear/article_em.htm.  But I'm not sure what is in there or how long.  Do you have any issues with it like pain?

Hello~I think you should see your doctor, any foreign object in your ear is not safe and can problems later on.
