This boy’s ear is killing him. What doctors found in there makes me queasy.

There’s certain times I’m glad I don’t live in Central or South America, and one of those times was while watching this video.

Basically you see what it looks like for a young boy to suffer from myiasis, which is an infestation in the living body from maggots, and what the doctor has to do in order to remove them. The kid went to the doctor originally because he kept hearing things that didn’t make sense from his surroundings and that’s then the doctor discovered his condition.


Disgusting, right? Apparently this is more common than you might think, but is still incredibly rare in first world areas. The one thing I’m sure of after seeing this however, is that I’m irrationally happy I won’t have to worry about squirming maggots in my ears!
