 Ladybird‘s Head Lodged in a Woman’s Ear for Nearly Three Years

Twenty-eight-year old Danielle Eccles's experienced ear pain and temporary hearing loss for nearly three years, during which time she had made many visits to the doctor.

It all began as unbearable earaches. Her right ear appeared to be blocked and swollen and she began to experience temporary deafness too.

She was prescribed ear drops after doctors noticed nothing unusual inside her ear, maybe just a blob of wax.

One day, when she was putting more ear drops, a ladybird's head fell out of her ear.

She remembered an incident when she had felt a tickling sensation in her ear, as if something had crawled in.

Doctors had checked inside her ear and had spotted nothing to sound an alarm.

This time, however, she was finally referred to hospital, where an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist removed the rest of the ladybird lodged inside the ear.

'It sounds funny but I thought I was going mad. It's made my life a nightmare. I just can't believe no one saw it. After all, it must be the brightest, spottiest bug in the UK. We could clearly see from its spots it was a ladybird. I was instantly able to hear again and that was such a relief. But I feel angry. I was made to feel I was making a fuss about nothing and feel I should have been referred to a specialist much earlier,' Mrs. Eccles said.
