Maggot Therapy Applied to Rotten Foot

Maggot Therapy Applied to Rotten Foot

Maggot therapy is the cheapest and perhaps the most effective method of controlling narcotisation of flesh without side effects. When supply of blood is severely disrupted, which often happens in cases of people suffering from diabetes, cells begin to die and whole area can turn into a rotten mass. Maggots feed on dead flesh, slowing down or completely halting further spread of it.

As someone who spends a lot of time in the wilderness far away from any potential help, I know a fair bit about it. In a natural setting, even the smallest of cuts can become infected and pose a serious threat. If it gets to that point, maggot therapy could be the solution. All you need to do is expose your wound to the flies. They will quickly lay eggs in there and before you know it, little hatched maggots will start crawling inside the wound. It may look (and probably feel) creepy, but it works. I have not found myself in need of giving it a try yet, so I don’t have direct personal experience. But as a wilderness man, I know about it.

I do not have sufficient background info about the video. The patient could be a diabetic. Their ankle partially necrotized so maggots were used to help clear the necrotic flesh up.

      1. fck that..!!, how many times have we seeen people with this maggot shit outta control., maybe thats what they thot.., hmm.., afew maggots later and I’ll be fine.., next thing you no., the maggots have made a meal of said humans BS Therapy.

  1. Knowing that the maggots eat only the dead tissue is reassuring. Just imagine a couple maggots go on an all you eat trip through your leg. If they were cannibalistic you could really do some damage. Now that would be something to see..

  2. To be honest I think it’s a burn wound from a first degree burn to a third because the way the wound looks. Personally I think this person burned him/her self on a motorcycle tailpipe(?) but I could be wrong and overlooking things.

  3. The medical ones only go for the dead tissue. Your average street maggot might go for fresh tissue. It probably doesn’t hurt either since the tissue is dead. Still gross to imagine them wriggling around in there.

    As someone else already said … Eww!

  4. That doesn’t look like a diabetic’s foot.

    I find human myiasis quite fascinating as the effect depends on where the larvae are located. Larvae may infect dead, necrotic or living tissue in various sites: the skin, eyes, nasal sinuses, ears, stomach and intestinal tract, or in genitourinary sites as well as open wounds and lesions or unbroken skin (blowflies, botflies and fleshflies). Some enter the body through the nose or ears (there was an interesting case of an A&E nurse in the UK who developed chronic sinusitis unresponsive to antibiotics; it was only when she underwent endoscopic examination and sinus wash-out that it was discovered that her sinus was full of the little wriggling creatures. She subsequently remembered inhaling a fly whilst cycling to or from work. Larvae or eggs can also reach the stomach or intestines if they are swallowed with food and cause gastric or intestinal myiasis

  5. since those are sterile medical maggots that wouldn’t disgust me, that must be tickling, and having my feet tickled is better than any orgasm, no sexual thing in it, just relaaaaxing… When women go in some spas to have the dead skin of their feet eaten by fish, what’s the difference ?

  6. Ok so I looked up maggot treatments and basically got the information on what’s going on this video.
    So apparently this guy Sverre Stromhaug is from Norway hence the language. He caught two diseases Antifosforlipidsyndrom? and Pyodermagrangrenosum from a soccer injury in 1985. The two diseases would cause deep tissue to die and cause ulcers around the leg.
