Patient Comments: Objects In Ear - Symptoms

What were the symptoms experienced with an object or insect in your child's ear? In your ear? Please share your story.

Comment from: william, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: May 13

I always sleep on the floor because of my back. Currently, I don't have health insurance, so I've been treating my ear myself by putting peroxide in it. But now it's gotten worse and feels like it has bugs in there. I heard oil might help kill the “bug” or whatever it is, but I don't know what oil to use.
