I'm not familiar with the healthcare system in New Zealand. I've seen patients use the ED for things like this while uninsured, and the visit cost them thousands of dollars out of pocket - something they couldn't afford and would later receive outrageous bills, debt collector calls, etc. Just trying to give a home remedy.

I can understand the concern there, it's actually why I figured all the alternate suggestions were being given.

The Kiwis are a bunch of dirty socialists, last I checked, so hospital work is generally free; going by the words of wiki. If Muffs still lives and says different, we learn something new.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

RE: wtf
my sister had a mosquito in her ear once, the sound alone was about to send her to the looney bin, but it was biting her, making the canal swell and couldnt get out and no one could get in with tweezers, she ended up going to the ER because she losing her mind.

My brother (a paramedic) got a call for someone that was suddenly having difficulty hearing. Patient said it was fine one day, woke up the next day and couldnt hear. The guy had a cockroach in his ear!!


hope you are feeling better muffs!

RE: wtf
I inhaled a fly once. I could feel that darn thing crawling and I sneezed and blew my nose and flushed it and everything. The fly kept tickling me and then eventually stopped. For all I know it's calcified in there by now. Never did come out.

Let us know what happened, Muffs. I am a bit worried...

RE: wtf
I remember a Twilight Zone episode about an earwig going into someone's ear and into the brain. It caused all sorts of pain but eventually came back out. Then the doctor informed the patient that the thing had laid eggs all in this brain. YUCK! That may have been the last Twilight Zone I ever watched - freaked me out for years.

Muffsy, you okay?

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Funny you bring that up. Turns out insects don't use the ear for eggs, not a one. The reason being is earwax, there is a reason humans have it. Earwax stops things from entering the ear and causing damage. Insects would get stuck in this earwax, left for dead. For an egg laying insect, a warm and easy to escape spot is what an insect would use.

It was fiction but creepy as hell.

Muffs, get the isopropyl alcohol already suggested, get distilled vinegar, mix 50/50 - the vinegar kills the fucking thing and the alcohol dries your ear out. Use paper to form a small cone as suggested.

Pour in and leave in for a few minutes. Drain it. If the bug doesn’t come out you need to go to the hospital.

DO NOT GO STICKING ANYTHING IN YOUR EAR!
