    My mind is blown. How do you even go so long and -not- know there is an issue? I mean, for crying out loud, his skull is exposed! I get possible limited medical coverage/access/etc but

    Maggots only eat diseased, dead flesh. They probably helped keep it clean. They`re used on burn victims to remove the dead, burnt skin `cause they won`t touch living tissue.

    So, gross but they probably are helping the guy.

    If I had to watch this in real life, I`d probably hurl. But for some reason I find videos like this unendingly fascinating.

    And like Gerry said, they often use maggots in hospitals for people with loads of tead tissue because they eat away all the dead tissue and let the good tissue regrow. Looks nasty though.

    Never thought that ailment could go so bad
    My other half had it in her leg 2 years ago, damn painful but never got anywhere near that bad
    antibiotics saved the day.
    still had to have 3 weeks or so off work mind

    i aint sure but i once heard talk of using maggots to eat necrotic tisue to clean the wound. cause when i look at the skin discoloration, it seems to be dead flesh that the maggots are eating. could this be said treatment?

    The OP on Youtube states:

    This patient was admitted in our surgery department as a case of cellulitis with maggots in scalp. It was due to great negligence. He was a destitute. Following some days when his condition partially improved he absconded.

    So not medical maggots. A homeless man that let a bad medical condition go too far.

    For the record, maggots only eat dead tissue. This is why they`re sometimes used in medicine.

    I am going to believe that was special effects - like maybe the winner of the "face off" game show? Ya, that must be it.
