Chinese Woman Had Spider Living Inside Ear For 5 Days

CHANGSHA, China (CBS Seattle) — The urban legend of spiders crawling into one’s ears while sleeping became reality for one Chinese woman as she had a spider living inside her ear for five days.

The woman went to China’s Changsha Central Hospital Wednesday complaining of an itchy ear.

Dr. Liu Sheng told local news agencies that when he looked at the woman’s left ear canal, he found a live spider.

Doctors used a saline solution to flush out the spider from the woman’s ear. Her ear canal was not damaged in the process.

The woman told the news agency that she fell asleep after doing renovations at her new home last week, and when she woke up the next day, her left ear felt itchy.

Dr. Sheng said the woman did not make her condition worse because she didn’t scratch her ear.
