i want everyone to know that it is painless and easy to remove.

This condition is not as common with humans as it is with livestock and other animals. However, this particular case is rather gruesome and is worth documenting via film before treatment.
if you want to see what maggot therapy looks like go here.
Myiasis is the correct term for this affliction and it is by no means good for him. This kid here would have died when these parasites reached his brain... if not sooner. This one is probably caused from the blowfly and yes, it occurs in the U.S. as well as third world nations.
In this case the kid was lucky, the doctors picked out all the larvae and bandaged the wound up.
Gave me wood
Then why the hell did you post it???This is like Pandora`s box. You know people will open it anyways.
My sanity needs it to be.
I wonder what happened to him?
yes that was tagalog, dno if it was in the philz tho
but anyways that sure made me shudder a fair bit.. quite engrossing but, futurama is taking my mind off it now
I NEED dratING CLOSURE!!!!
For the record, I don`t think those were maggots. I think they were screw worms, seeing as they were eating live flesh and seem to have burrowed pretty deeply.
Tuesday, August 26, 2008 12:20:42 AMAs someone had already pointed out, maggots don`t eat living flesh, only dead tissue. These maggots were likely put into the wound by a surgeon to eat away the dead matter to prevent infection. Happens all the time nowadays. When the maggots are done eating, they just fall out and the surgeon stitches the wound up again.
Not like that... thats just a fly struck little kid =(
Invasion of the flesh eating maggots... is this happening right now or what?
