It was a literal tape worm.
A UK mom was relieved — albeit embarrassed — after discovering that her son’s “brain-eating worm” was actually a harmless piece of tape. The ordeal occurred in November 2019 — but she’s just now going viral for detailing it in a Facebook post, Kennedy News reported.
“I wasted the doctor’s time,” wrote Gemma Tyson, 39, along with a snap of the “parasite” that she yanked from her child’s ear.
The mess began after the Bristol, England, resident’s son Ashton, 10, came to her complaining about an “itchy ear,” per the post.
Initially thinking it “was a big ball of wax,” Tyson quickly realized something else was afoot after she yanked on the foreign body with tweezers and it kept coming out like a magician’s silk streamer.
“It was like a sticky/waxy texture that you couldn’t pull apart” noted the aghast mother of three, who thought, “Oh my God, he has a giant worm in his ear.”Ashton Horsfield (far right) had tape in his ear, masking as a parasite.Kennedy News and Media
At that point, Tyson checked into the medical center straight away. Unfortunately, the doctors weren’t sure what the culprit was either so they sent it to a lab for testing.
“I left still freaking out thinking my child had worms in his ears,” said the distraught mother.
Relief finally came a few hours later when Ashton said, “I wonder if it’s the tape I put in my ear the other week as I couldn’t get that out.”Distressed mom Gemma Tyson documented her son's tape trauma on social media.

Despite being embarrassed over the adhesive infiltrator, Tyson said she “was relieved it wasn’t a worm.” Here’s hoping that unlike the tape, the lesson will stick in Ashton’s head in the future.
She concluded the disgusting story by asking the peanut gallery what other unlikely items their kids had inserted into their ears.
“My son has had play doh, stickers paper, and orange peel in his ear,” wrote one.
Unfortunately, little kids aren’t the only ones guilty of placing foreign objects into various orifices and then “forgetting” about them.

From toast in the morning to buns on that burger in the evening, bread is a major staple in many American diets. In fact, according to research from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the average American consumes more than 100 percent of their recommended daily allowance (RDA) of grains in a single day. However, it’s not just the calories those slices of bread add to your diet that could be a problem for your health in the long run. There’s yet another surprising side effect of eating a diet high in bread products that you could be overlooking: trouble focusing and cognitive problems later in life.
"Refined carbs create a state of low-level inflammation in the body which, causes a host of health issues, including declined cognitive function," says nutritionist Lisa Richards, CNC, author of The Candida Diet. "You will experience fatigue and brain fog from the inflammatory nature of the ingredients."
The cognitive effects of a bread-heavy diet may last longer than you'd expect; according to a 2012 study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, among 1,230 individuals between ages 70 to 89, those with the highest intake of carbohydrate-rich foods, like bread, had nearly twice the likelihood of developing cognitive impairments compared to those who ate fewer carbs. That’s not the only way eating bread may be affecting your health, however; read on to find out the other signs you’re eating too much bread. And if you’re streamlining your diet, start by ditching the 100 Unhealthiest Foods on the Planet.
