One of the nerve-wracking things any human is terrified of is crawly insects hidden in our body without our knowledge. This story is one such horrifying incidents that literally happened to an unfortunate lady. As the doctors documented this terrifying moment, they found a live spider crawling through the woman’s ear canal.
As bizarre and horrifying as it may sound, ears can be a very suitable environment for spiders. It’s because ears provide a warm and moist den for the spiders. That too only until the host decided to seek medical attention.
This woman decided to seek medical attention at Mianyang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Sichuan Province in south-western China. She consulted the ENT (ear, nose, throat) specialist Liu Jun, who stated that the elderly female patient visited the hospital’s outpatient clinic with her daughter just last week, on April 22.
The woman complained to the doctors that she had been feeling a ringing in her ears and occasional itching, followed by a ‘stinging pain’. After close inspection, Doctor Liu spotted a ball of silk in the woman’s ear canal, and she was immediately taken for an otoscopy – an ear examination. It revealed that a live spider is living inside her ear!
There is a clip of the procedure in which it shows the spider looking frightened by the medic’s light, as it appears from behind its web and scrambles to protect itself from the medical equipment.
Doctor Liu paralyzed the spider with chemical ear drops and removed it with tweezers a minute later. Fortunately, the patient’s ear hadn’t suffered any damage at the hands of the spider and was cleaned with a saline solution.
The pensioner believes that the spider most probably crawled into her ear while she was working on a vineyard one week ago.
The doctor stated the following:
