Bugs in ears

Hey, just like ten minuets ago I took a shower and after getting out I had that ear wax feeling like something was moving around, so I took like two or three Q-tips and started cleaning my ear, after two q-tips I still felt the feeling of something moving, so I took a q-tip and went back in, when I brought it out I saw a large clump of dark ear wax, and after that I looked closer and it looked like a bug. After going crazy for five minuets I finally decided to look it up on yahoo but could not find anything and online and most of the sources said bugs in the ear are an urban myth, so I took a magnifying glass and looked at it a little more in depth and I cant say 100% that it

That sounds terrible!
Have you still got the bug?

Take it to a specialist and ask them what they think it is if so.
If not, you should still go to ENT and describe what yoo found.



Just a suggestion... Maybe it was an odd nit?

Oooh that must have been horrible! Gotta tell you, though,  what you're describing sounds like what Katie just suggested - headlice (their egg sacs are called Nits). Check if you have head lice...they are tiny little brown creatures just like you describe and their favourite place to set up camp is right behind your ears. If you don't have anyone who can check your hair & scalp for you, then buy a nitcomb, wash your hair, pile on the conditioner and comb your hair through with the nitcomb...you'll see the little brown lice caught up in the conditioner in the comb's teeth if you do have them. It is quite possible one took a wrong turn and ended up inside your ear!! They are easily got rid of with over the counter solutions from the pharmacy. good Luck!

Regarding the bug:

You can see either an Audiologist or an ENT for that issue.

Bugs in the Ear are for sure not an urban myth...  Seen several cockroches in my day, and ants are pretty popular.

Ear wax is actually caustic to bugs.

Good luck

If you have bugs in your ears, which is always possible, you should put honey in your ear to compleatly kill the bugs remaining in your ears. This will also clump all bugs together making them easier to "grab" out of your ear.

Do not feel crazy. For the past few weeks i have had stuff moving in my ears and nose. These people are right, i did have head lice from my grand daughter from daycare. I dont know what to do. Do i go to the dr or are there things that will take this away. The people at the dr office are really going to think im nuts now.

A bug in the ear is not an unusual occurance.  They sometimes crawl in when you are sleeping.  It can be a terrorizing experience, hearing and feeling it move around in there.  you can kill the bug with mineral oil.  Lay on side and place mineral oil in ear.  That will suffercate the bug so you can remove it

ok, maybe somebody can help me.....my six year old came home from school with lice 10 days ago, and about the same time I noticed that the inside of my nose was really itchy and my ears feel itchy and full as well.   Do lice nest in your nose and ears?  My daughter has extremely curly textured hair, and it has been quite a challenge to get rid of all the nits......

For ear clicking, try 10 drops of hydrogen peroxide.

For nasal, try to get a prescription for albendazole / ivermectin. May also want to get tested for lyme and lyme related organisms if this has been a long lasting issue.
