Yes I am also afraid of bugs getting into my ears also and I only feel really comfortable when I'm walking outside with earbuds or something that cover my ears in general

I think I have built up ear wax (not severe) and my sister told me to put warm water in my ears. I can't stand the thought of liquid going into my ears. I've been afraid of that for as long as I can remember. I'm not even sure why. I've never had a traumatizing experience that would cause this fear, I just hate it.

I had many ear infections as a kid and I had tubes put in my ears. My mom and doctor used to have to hold me down to put drops in my ear. I developed phobia of anything going into my ear especially liquid. It makes me shiver just thinking about it. I can't put my head under water without holding my ears closed. I can't lay on my side either because I imagine things getting into my open ear while I sleep. I recently had another bad ear infection and needed antibiotic eardrops, but I couldn't put them in myself. My husband had to hold me down while I convulsed, kicked, and screamed. Its terrible really. Im glad to know other people feel similarly.

Finally someone else with this phobia

I've had this phobia ever since I can remember, I just want to know if there is a technical term for it. I am petrified of the thought of anything going in or near my ears. My friend touched my ear on accident a couple days ago and I almost cried. I just hate it.

I recently posted about the exact same thing!

Though if you read mine, you'll find that my fear was induced by a cleaning operation.

The thought of anything entering my ear, let alone a BUG, is terrifying.

Same here. I call mine:Ear Pen

YAY FINALLY I FOUND SOMEPNE WITH THIS TOO! I am 15 and I have this same thing. It started when I read about the Hi-Fi robbery and the dad had a ballpoint pen kicked into his ear and it came out of his throat and he still lived!! I also had a gnat go in my ear and I had to get a small surgery to get it out (it was so small). When they finally got it out I have always had this fear. The worse I had was when of course me of all people (i love swimming) got ear infection and needed more surgery and I cried all night before and after just knowing someone was in my ear. I just shivered thinking about it now O_O. I am sorry I don't have any advice but I hope it gets better for you taylor
