In an try to the deal with the ache, Gomez determined to make use of some olive oil, oblivious to what he was about to seek out.
“I put a couple of drops of olive oil in my ears and decided to go back to sleep for a bit—I could feel tickling in my ear, but put it down to the oil,” Gomez mentioned.
“When I woke up a couple hours later, I could still feel the sensation, but also hear a faint scratching sound, so I decided to investigate with a cotton bud,” he mentioned.
But as he pulled out the cotton bud, the self-described arachnophobe was shocked to discover a spider’s physique minus one leg. He then spent round an hour attempting to take away the remaining spider physique elements, MailOnline reported.
“I used a hairpin and the cotton bud to retrieve the spider, making sure to count the legs coming out, then made sure to give my ear a good clean,” he mentioned. “My initial reaction was just to get the bloody thing out of me as fast as possible—I was obviously revolted as I hate spiders. Once I’d calmed down a bit I did think, ‘Well, that’s one for Facebook!'”
‘”Total sod’s law as I’m an arachnophobe—absolute nightmare! And the irony is—I’m a web designer for a living!,” he informed MailOnline
The earlier night, Gomez mentioned he had arrived residence from work to discover a spider’s nest above his door with quite a few hatchlings, which he swept away with a brush.
“I can only presume one from the nest I cleared must have snuck into my ear overnight—maybe as some sort of revenge mission!” he mentioned.
Gomez added that he hoped the spider was male so it did not have an opportunity to put eggs in his ear canal, though he’s not going to see a physician over the problem. From now, he mentioned he was going to take additional precautions to stop the state of affairs occurring once more.
