This Doctor Removed A Horrifying Parasite Hiding Inside A Woman's Lip

This video shows a woman's frightening doctors appointment, she has a horribly swollen upper lip and as expected, the doctor's diagnosis is blood curdling.

A parasite in a woman's upper lip: You might think that this woman just has a particularly plump upper lip, but the reality is much less glamorous. This unidentified person appears in a video posted in March on the internet. The origin of these images remains a mystery, but one thing is certain: this patient must have regretted knowing what was happening to her.

According to The Inquisitr, the unknown woman had already been suffering for several days when she went to the doctors shown in this video. Her upper lip was swollen and hurt badly. The medical staff quickly realised what had to be done: they had to remove the parasitic larva that had settled there!

Not for the faint of heart 

The fly that uses other people's bodies as a nursery: Although the scene may surprise us, it is not that rare in South America. There is a species of fly called the Botfly whose larvae are parasites. Botflies usually lays eggs in the nostrils or wounds of livestock animals, but sometimes humans suffer the same fate. This unattractive condition is then called a myiasis.

In fact, we have already seen Botfly larvae settle in some unusual places: in a woman's scalp or a man's nose for example.
