African Kid Has Feet Infested with Jiggers (Chigoe Flea)

Jiggers is a common name for the Chigoe Flea – parasitic organism that sucks the blood of warmblooded hosts, such as humans. Male Jiggers just latch on the host and have a meal, but female Jiggers burrow under host’s skin where they feed on host’s blood vessels for weeks.

While in host’s skin, female Jiggers develop eggs and as they do, they expend in size, causing the host irritation and discomfort. Jiggers infestation can lead to significant deformation of affected areas, and other cosmetic issues, such as the loss of nails. Left untreated, they can lead to threatening infections.

While waiting for the host to latch on, Jiggers live on the ground and attack exposed skin as soon as it comes within reach. For that reason, Jiggers infestations mostly occur on mammals’ feet. However Chigoe Fleas have been observed to take high leaps, and sometimes spread to other body parts as well.

The African kid in the video below has both his feet and hands infested with Jiggers. The video shows a medic attempting to remove the fleas from under his skin.

    1. Well no doubt about it….that doctor is an expert in jiggers. The dude talks about their social habbits their, attack style, male jiggers, female jiggers and of course baby jiggers. If you want to know about jiggers. . .talk to doctor jigger. Doubtless a hot date. .if you like jiggers…

    1. Yeah. I want to know how that kid let them get that bad. Couldn’t he have picked them off much earlier? And wearing some kind of shoes would be a good idea too. Jesus christ.

    1. @eficaz – me too.
      many times (like many similar people) i have got onto the net, i mind of searching for one thing or another… only to end up watching videos of jiggers, botflies, mango worms , giant zits, blackheads, and serbatious cysts being squeezed out.
      just so satisfying.

  1. We have a Jig problem in my country as well.

    The male Jig does indeed live on the ground and attack those who come near it, often targeting white females with exposed skin.

    The female Jigs lay eggs and then expand in size by eating too much which can cause irritation and discomfort to the eyes of passer-bys.

    However all Jigs survive by latching onto the host and acting like parasites.

  2. This is one of the common diseases in Africa which is totally ignored. From my own judgement, I think about 3 in 5 of every African has these Jiggers though they may not be as severe as in this kid. They are caused mostly through second hand shoes wearing and bare footed movements in infected areas.

  3. Fair play to the lad for being so unperturbed about a load of creatures living in his feet and hands. He has one thing on his side. He won’t get a silly tree hugger telling his mother that he really needs antidepressants to pep his life up.

  4. Ugh, just amputate its limbs already… 😐 I wonder how thrilled they will be when they discover the amazing technology of feet protection, and advanced, strong and powerful piece of equipment called “Shoes”. 😆 Oh and showers too, but thats too advanced for their understanding.

    1. ?but thats too advanced for their understanding?.

      I don?t know about that, according to black history month they were the ancient Egyptians and ruled over a vast empire which gave birth to all other technology and empires all throughout the world?..until the white man stole it all anyway.

      So they must have had shoes at some point in history before that knowledge was stolen from their minds.

      1. They might of had shoes but they are too poor to afford them. And they are not smart I seen more dumb niggers then smart ones especially ones that are from the hood like Camden N.J those niggers are stupid

      2. Yeah but “black history month” tends to even indoctrinate people that the sun is black, god is black, jesus was black, einstein was black, and whites are evil… Cultural marxism propaganda machines working as intended.

          1. Aye, Polish people need to have a Polish History Month too. Just dont talk about the centuries of conflict against Germany, or germans might want a Germanic History Month too… 😆

          2. @ obli – you know mate, i would certainly be very interested in an article about how the moving of borders after WW2 affected the different cultures of your country…you know, areas of germany becoming poland, ethnic polish people finding themselves living in ukranian or belarussian Assr’s, etc etc.
            ok this is a gore site, but the whole border moving being WW2 linked should make that a problem?
            i know that “requests” arent a usual thing here, but….

          3. i don’t think anyone would really give a shit. members today don’t even have an appreciation for gore artwork let alone the past plights of dumb polaks. I don’t condone national pride. i see it as ultimate sheepdom now. i consider myself of nothing. this now is closest i ever get to “national pride” by saying this:

            More Pols dies in world war 2 than any jew. the allies and Germany leave Poland in ruins and leave the Pols to clean it up. the allies become heroes, the khazars become gods and the Pols are left with rubble. where are our days of mourning? our wailing walls? our fucking monuments? none have suffered more than Poland. imagine your country, your homeland, sectioned off and given to other nations. no independent Poland. forced to become aliens in what was once your own home. Poland has been taken apart and reassembled numerous times. but they always come back. that is what we do…we come back.

          4. I’d be very interested @Obli…

            I would want nothing more than a Polish man’s point of view on World War 2…

            I respect the Polish people…
            (No kiss ass)

          5. @Gnat

            I intend to publish it in the next few days. Great documentary, although establishment worshipers will not allow for what they were told to be challenged under no circumstances.

  5. A Chinese man enters a bar to find a Black bartender. He says, “Hey nigger, give me a jigger.”

    The Bartender responds, “That’s terrible! How would you like it if I said something like that to you? In fact, let’s just switch places. You get behind the bar and I’ll come in as a customer.”

    The Chinese man agrees and gets behind the bar. The Black man goes outside.

    Upon reentering, he says, “Hey Chink, give me a drink.”

    To which the Chinese man answers, “Sorry, we don’t serve niggers here.”

    1. you know, i never understood the whole “rainbow dash” thing – just dumb idiots just staring at a screen,.. then throwing their phone/ipad/pc down and crying & going red in the face when the silly game doesnt go their way? do they realize how much money the devs are making from silly people throwing cash at this daft game? you dont even have to stand up to play it or….etc,etc,etc,etc………
