Symptoms of spider in ear?

You would know.. I've had a couple of kids in my career with live insects in ears, and they are screaming, crying, batting at their ears in lots of distress. You can actually feel it moving around and it is extremely irritating because the ear canal is so sensitive. So, if you have to wonder if there is spider in there, then there certainly is not a live one. To see if dead insect there, someone has to look!
