I almost wish I had a small decaying wound so I could try that out of pure morbid curiosity

Watched the follow up vid. The wound is completely covered up with healthy skin and it appears almost back to normal (somewhat misshapen due to loss of tissue, but hell, it still looks like a heel) and she can walk around on it with no problems. Pretty crazy.

This is fantastic! Leeches and maggots are finally making their comebacks in modern medicine!

InvaderTiger, great question. I'm glad you asked it. The reason is because the infected areas are soft since the bacteria breakdown the skin and muscle tissue. Maggots can`t penetrate healthy tissue since it`s so much stronger/tough. It`s not painful, the only sensations the patient will feel is a slight tickle from time to time. People who wear a cast suffer more from the discomfort of itching than those under maggot, moth or leech therapies.

Nature`s little scrubbing grubs. :)
