More than THOUSAND ants removed from girl’s ears ...Celebrates after infestation finally dries up
An Indian girl who had more than a thousand ants removed from her ears with ten emerging every day is celebrating after the infestation finally dried up.
Shreya Darji, from Deesa, in Gujarat, western India, was blighted by the insects after doctors found them nesting in her drum canal.
Experts said they tried everything to extract the ants and were pulling hundreds of them out of the 12-year-old's ear at the peak of the problem.
But six months later, the youngster is now living a normal life once again after the creatures mysteriously disappeared.
Her father, who had consulted a series of doctors, believes divine intervention helped to solved the problem.
Sanjay Darji, 40, who runs a small television repair business, told the Times of
India: 'I think it is the grace of our deity which helped my little daughter.'
His relieved daughter added: 'Earlier, it was painful being a kid who has ears infested with ants, but now I can have all the fun.
'The big ants used to crawl out of my ears without warning, whether I was at school or playing with friends. The ants made my life so difficult. It also scared my friends to see ants crawling out of my ears.
'But, now everything is fine, and I am much relieved. I can now play with my friends and enjoy my holiday at my maternal uncle's place.'
Shreya's problem first started as an irritation in her ear in August last year, and when she visited her local hospital, doctors found the ants inside her ear canal.
A video filmed with an endoscopic camera showed a doctor removing what appears to be dead ants from her ear.
At the time, her desperate parents said they had tried everything, from traditional medical aids to witch doctors, but the ants keep emerging from her ears.
And Dr Jawahar Talsania, 58, senior Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) surgeon, in Gujarat, said: 'We have conducted all possible scans on the child including an MRI and CT scan but they are all normal. We cannot find any abnormality in her ears. ' Culled from dailymail.co.uk
