Even worse, we couldn't get it out! The PA was trying to pull it out with clamps but it kept backing further into the ear canal every time we put the light in. She finally ended up pulling off the head but leaving the big ol' exoskeleton and guts. We tried to flush it out with water but it didn't work. We finally called the ear, nose, throat specialist and he told us that cockroaches are the hardest to remove from the ear because they have little pinchers on their legs that they dig into skin with. She had to meet him at his office where he had specialty microscopic equipment to pull it out. Poor lady!
For the rest of the day, every time my ear itched, I freaked out.
