I came back from somewhere tropical just over a week ago.
Had some mosquito bites that got infected and turned into cellulitis. That’s clearing up with antibiotics.

But now I can see what’s in there and I have actual maggot things.

Fucking help me!

It’s 3am. It is excruciatingly painful and I can feel them move.

I had much Prosecco yesterday as did H. I could wake DD up or could waiti til morning. But i am freaking out badly.

Talk to NHS direct.

You may have to live with them until they are big enough to be squeezed out. Sorry.

If you are in or near London think about going to the walk in at the hospital for tropical diseases.

Oh bless you, how absolutely awful. Definitely get yourself down there ASAP in a cab. Do you need to wake DD if DH is there to deal with her?

DannyWallace Mon 22-Apr-19 04:23:16

Good luck op. Glad you're there!!

Ok. If they are putzi flies then you can get them out yourself with dh's help. You cover the site with vaseline. The maggot will need to break through to be able to breath. You - or dh - then wrap your fingers in tissue paper (to stop slipping on the grease) and squeeze it out. Repeat for each site. They live cleanly so once they're out then you won't need any further treatment. Good luck OP!
