Four-year-old who went to the doctors complaining of an itch has 80 MAGGOTS removed from her ear
A four-year-old girl had 80 maggots removed from her ear as a result of living in dirty conditions.
Radhika Mandloi, from central India, started to suffer extreme pain and itching in her left ear last week.
Her parents initially dismissed her discomfort, but when she began crying continuously they took her to hospital.
Doctors were shocked to find a blow fly - attracted to bad smells - inside her ear which had laid around 80 larva.
They warned if she was left untreated for any longer the insects could have began to start eating at her brain - putting her life in danger.
