A Chinese woman visited the hospital to investigate the cause of itchiness in her ear only to have the doctor tell her that a spider had booked five days at the waxy Hilton suite otherwise known as her ear canal.
A Reddit user posted an x-ray of the nightmare from a news program in the Hunan province.
Many saw the picture and decided to share their own insect horror stories.
I generally have a strong stomach but this is a bit out of my comfort zone.
I was basically given arachnophobia by my own family after they repeatedly made me carry up piles of dry wood from below our house. Each piece held several wonderfully eight-eyed black and brown surprises, and they often fell onto my skin. Thanks, mom.
Just kidding, I love you. At least they weren’t earwigs or red centipedes, which I’m even more afraid of (Google is also full of tales of those climbing inside people’s orifices, search at your own risk).
