Surprise! … there was a scorpion in the ear!
This is exactly what happened to one of our patients.
He contacted us for a strange sensation in his ear, not really pain but the feeling of having something inside.
We thought it was the usual earwax plug … but as soon as the otoscope is inserted inside the ear, the surprise: there was something strange … a small scorpion!
The doctor immediately proceeded to extract it and medicate the inside of the ear which, thank goodness, had not had any particular trauma.
And our patient was able to go back to enjoying his vacation right away.
