While kids sometimes have to deal with items stuck in their ears and adults may contend with ants or insects entering the ear canal, that pales in comparison to what this woman experienced.
Indian social media influencer, Chandan Singh – boasting over 20,000 followers – posted a stunning viral video. The clip shows an enthralling scene of a doctor trying to dislodge a slithery creature out of the ear canal of an unsuspecting woman!
On September 1, 2022, Chandan uploaded a video to Facebook with the following description: “the snake has gone in the ear.” In this four-minute video, you can watch the difficulty of a doctor’s efforts to extract a slithering snake from within an unfortunate woman’s ear. The doctor painfully employs various equipment such as tweezers and syringes for removal, but their arduous battle is clear.
Shock and outrage have gripped viewers after the now-viral clip left them uncertain as to whether their efforts freed the woman from her serpentine nightmare.
People are absolutely mesmerized by this astounding video and cannot help but suggest that it was edited. They remain unable to believe its authenticity, yet they find themselves glued to the screen as soon as it’s posted and shared; in just a short time, over 125,000 people have already watched it!
A skeptic took to writing:: “He looks like a bogus doctor. That’s why he’s pulling off so many tricks.” Another person joked: “Instead of a doctor, a snake charmer would have extracted the snake.” This user offered a sound justification of the circumstance.
The comment suggested that the snake was facing with its head out, implying it had crawled in and then twisted around inside. This seemed inconceivable due to the size of the creature compared to the tightness of an ear canal.
Despite its contested legitimacy, it’s an all-too-common problem for small creatures to crawl into people’s ears, especially in certain regions. It happens more often than one might think.
A visitor to Puerto Rico experienced the most unpleasant surprise while snorkeling—a crab had crawled into his ear! Similarly, a New Zealander had an unwelcome guest in his ears for three days earlier this year. It is hard to imagine that kind of discomfort and pain as cockroaches can bite and move around inside our delicate body parts.
Learning First Aid techniques for when something, like an insect or object, enters someone’s ear can help save the day – both for adults and children. The effectiveness of these tips will vary depending on the situation you are confronted with; nevertheless, it is important to be prepared!
Not only can pain and infection be side effects of something being lodged in your ear, but even permanent hearing loss is a potential risk. It’s obvious when an object has been stuck inside the ear, however, young children may be oblivious to this issue. Therefore it’s important for adults to take special care of their little ones’ ears!
Whenever possible, remove the foreign object from your ear. But if that is not an option, it’s best to avoid using cotton swabs since they could potentially push the item deeper into your canal. Take advantage of gravity and tilt your head sideways in order to attempt dislodging it on its own. Alternatively, use a combination of oil or water and try floating out whatever has made its way inside!
When all else fails, the best recourse is to take the person to a trusted medical professional who specializes in ear, nose, and throat care.
