What’s wrong? You got a spider in your ear or something?
In the case of a woman in China recently, the answer to this question would be a resounding “yes.”
After noticing that the left side of her head had been itching for five days, she went to the hospital and doctors found the tiny arachnid relaxing in her ear canal. It apparently crawled in while she was sleeping.
A saline wash later, the spider was removed and the woman was returned to normal.
Even more frightening is the fact that all the warm weather and droughts recently have resulted in an increase in spiders and other bugs. I don’t know about you, but I might start sleeping with ear plugs.
