People are horrified over video showing spider crawled up inside person’s ear

Are you a mega arachnophobe? Well, you might want to look away or you'll have nightmares forever.

Skin-crawling footage has surfaced online of a spider that was found living inside a woman's ear in India.

Arachnophobe or not, you may want to brace yourselves for this one.

In the clip, the eight-legged freak can be seen nesting inside her ear canal.


It raises so many questions.

How did she not notice? Were they friends? How big were her ear holes?

Anyway, the video has resurfaced online after originally grossing out people around the globe in 2018.

It's making viewers feel extremely squeamish all over again and, honestly, this was not on our 2022 bingo card.


One user wrote: "I would find a living creature crawling around in my ear unbearable, especially if I knew it was a spider."

Another said: "It crawled to the edge, why wouldn't you just flick it out?"

A third commented: “No way am I letting this spider live in my head rent free.”


While another shared: "I hate spiders and would completely freak out if a spider was in my ear. Having said that, his face was kinda cute."

Way to find the silver lining.

According to the India Times, the arachnid was found in 49-year-old housewife Lakshmi.

She made the stomach-churning discovery after experiencing an earache in Bangalore, India.

As her condition worsened, the woman asked her daughter to look at her ear with her torch.

While her daughter couldn't find anything, Lakshmi continued to feel sharp pains and unbearable discomfort.

Just quietly, if you're going to squat in someone's ear, you'd think you'd be quiet about it.


Lakshmi's husband rushed her to the hospital where doctors evicted the disgusting spider from his home.

She said, as per Newsflare: "I was terrified as I could feel movement of a creature in my ear. The acute earache followed by sharp pains suffocated me.

"I couldn’t think of anything and was petrified when the doctor confirmed the presence of a spider in my ear."

Feeling faint yet?

Ear Nose and Throat surgeon Dr Santosh Shivaswamy revealed that it was a rare and odd medical marvel.

"It is common to see emergency room visits due to the presence a foreign object in the ear, and it takes a simple procedure to remove the object," Dr Santosh Shivaswamy said.

“However, when a living insect makes its way inside a human ear, the patient might get frightened making it difficult for the doctor to continue the procedure. It was a rare case to see a spider moving inside the ear canal.”

Alright, everyone get in the car. We're going to buy a lifetime supply of earmuffs.
