This sounds like an urban legend, but I'm afraid it's not. aaah2.gif
Quote:Catherine Stewart, 28, from Liverpool, visited The Gambia to better understand how the charity she worked for in the UK was helping the West African country's inhabitants.

When she returned to the UK and discovered several bites on her body she wasn't worried - but as one turned yellow she thought she should investigate it further.

Squeezing the lesion revealed she was infested with the larvae of the tumbu fly which gorge on human flesh.

'There were just a few red circles that looked like bites [when I was in The Gambia], but when I got home I found more,' she said.

'When I found a yellow one on my stomach I just thought it was just a small infected bite with pus and thought squeezing it might help,'

'But as I squeezed I felt something pull back [into the skin]. I immediately thought there was something wrong.'

Catherine immediately called her husband Paul and asked him to help.

'I called for him to grab some tweezers and then asked him if he could pull out whatever it was that was moving under my skin if I squeezed.' Paul then pulled out a large maggot.

'I started screaming and saying "No, no, please tell me it's not a maggot!". Paul then looked at me and said "I think we need to go to hospital",'
