A mother in Australia is warning parents to check their children's ears.

Yahoo News reports that one mother found something disturbing in her daughter's ear.

The daughter had complained that she had a pimple in her ear. Her mother had her remove her earrings and that was when she discovered something hiding behind the backing of the earrings.

There was a tick embedded in the child's earlobe.

Ticks are a common problem in the spring months in Australia. They can feed on both human and animal blood and can be especially dangerous to pets.

The mother's discovery on her daughter's ear serves as a warning that ticks can be found anywhere and it may be necessary to do a thorough check if exposed.
