For the first time in Sri Lanka, doctors have found hundreds of home dust mites, similar to those found in mobile phones, in a human ear, Ministry of Health said.

This discovery was made by doctors of the Kalutra, Nagoda hospital when a patient arrived with an abnormal dust-like growth in his ear.

These organisms usually grow in external environments and this is the first time doctors discovered them in an internal environment.

Doctors say that this maybe due to the lack of personal hygiene and it is not yet confirmed that they have entered the victim’s ear by a mobile phone.

    If the bug is unidentified and if it is new to sri lanka,
    then this bug would have come to sri lanka via used items imports, the government should impose stop importing used items, specially old and used phones, plasma tvs, fridges, Washing Machines, head phones, ear phones and many others, which insect make there home, when not used for a long period.
    Same time i have heard that most infected items in the hotel room is a TV and Air condition remote controllers, They too carry bugs through the finger nails.
