A Salt Lake City boy can breath easier this week after a lego piece was removed from his nose after three years.

Isaak Lasson, 6, suffered from sinus issues from the time he was three years-old but doctors were at a loss for what was wrong.

KSL reported that the boy has seen multiple doctors and had been given round after round of antibiotics to deal with his problems but to no avail.

For three years this continued.

Then one day in late July, an observant doctor sent Isaak to a specialist after noticing something unusual in the boy's nose.

The specialist pulled out a ball of fungus, reported the Daily News.

Within the fungus was encased a flexible lego tire that the boy must have jammed up there years before.

Apparently Isaak's appetite has now improved along with his breathing, said KSL.

“You ask yourself, ‘Am I a bad parent because I didn’t catch it sooner?’ But the doctors just kept prescribing antibiotics,” said Isaak's father Craig.

“We just didn’t know.”
