When I was a little girl, I got curious about what would happen if I stuck a small bead up my nose.
Of course, that little stunt landed me in the hospital, where doctors had to remove the object from my nostril as my mom watched in horror. Needless to say, the experience wasn’t very fun, but I’d do it all over again if it meant that I’d never have to go through the nightmare this poor woman dealt with.
When 42-year-old Selvi from Injambakkam, India, began feeling what she called a crawling sensation in her nostril and a burning in her eyes, she decided to go to a nearby clinic.

The freaky creature had been sitting in her skull base right between her eyes. Doctors say that if left inside, the cockroach would have died, causing an infection to develop and spread to Selvi’s brain.
