reaching for a Q-tip.
Doctors in China were shocked to discover that a
man’s earache was caused by around a dozen
cockroaches that had hatched in his hearing canal.
The 24-year-old man — identified only as Mr. Lv —
was admitted in October to Sanhe Hospital in the

and use mosquito nets and screens on windows,”
he said. “That’ll stop insects from flying or crawling
into your noses and ears.”
