I'm laying in bed and am already well into dreamland when all of a sudden I hear the annoying gnat sound of buzzing wings in my ear... I thought, at first, that it was targeting me and flying above, so I swatted at it and the sound went away. Then, I start to feel a vibrating sensation inside of my ear, and the buzzing sound from earlier gets louder and louder until it is like a 12 speaker surround sound front and center on my ear drum.
Ok, so probably not. I doubt that fly wanted to be in there as much as I wanted him in there but he had to come out!
So, I got out of bed and started brainstorming before my brain was taken over by the "Gnat Clan." Gotta think before I am doomed!
So, I tried a Q-Tip... but that wasn't very effective.
Then, it hit me... Hydrogen Peroxide.
I went online to make sure I wasn't too crazy of a nut and surely enough - it is more common than I thought! One person said that they went to the doctor and he said that, that was probably they best thing that she could have done. Who knew?!
So, I filled my ear with hydrogen peroxide as much as I could and with my head held sideways let it do it's job. I let it bubble for a good 5 minutes.
I emptied my ear out the best I could, dried it with a rag, and went to bed (with my ear facing down so it could finish draining).
Besides the bubbling sound (the sound of hydrogen peroxide cleaning my ear out) - I gnat was gone. The bubbling went away and I finally fell asleep.
SO- If you ever get a bug in your ear, now you know what to do!
Hydrogen Peroxide that baby!
