How to dislodge a fish bone stuck in your throat

A fish bone stuck in your throat can be pretty frightening. We've got tips on how to dislodge one.

There are several ways to dislodge a fish bone stuck in your throat. First, never use utensils to dislodge a bone - that can make matters worse. Eat small pieces of dry bread, but don't chew it a lot - that increases the chances that the bone will dislodge when you swallow. Drink plenty of water to flush out your throat. Eating rice, potato or banana can also help remove a fish bone. If none of these suggestions work, seek medical help immediately.
