Is there anything you can do if you swallow a piece of hard candy before it has reached its OCSS (optimal comfort swallowing size)?

Asked by gimmedat (3943points) December 29th, 2008 from iPhone

You know when you swallow a hard candy before its time, and you swear you can still feel that little bugger just sitting in your chest? What do you do? Is there anything you can do?

drink something hot to help it melt faster

I know what you are talking about and I hate it. I just leave it be. It will go away. I never tried something hot, though.

Gag and roll around in pain? That’s what I do, anyway.

@Katawa, I will be sure to pass that onto my 10-year-old, who’s currently experiencing this painful candy nightmare.

Oh, I’m sorry! That’s terrible. I thought this was a hypothetical question. Tell your kid to drink something. Even if it’s not hot it might help it slide down into the stomach better.

Ah, don’t worry about it. He’s a tough little guy who will get through it just fine as I play on Fluther.

dark pop works well too

Oh I hate when that happens. Sometimes I hit myself in the area it’s lodged in…at least it makes me feel like I’m doing something about it. The hot drink would probably work better, though.

I usually swallow something quick, not nessessarily hot or cold. Usually it goes away within a minute or two whatever I do.
