Dear Jacustomer,

I am sorry to know about it.

Based on what you mentioned,I will advise that you see a physician who can do a physical exam of ear,the physician may irrigate the ear canal canal with mineral oil and this will make the bug come out by itself.But I will not advise that you do this in home.Do not put fingers on any object in ear ,to prevent further complications.

Thanks

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
