The creepy crawlers which appears as squirming white mass deep inside the boy’s ear measures about one centimetre long.

According to Yadav, the young patient is suffering from aural myasis in which a person's ears or nose are infested with fly larvae. This condition which is common in tropics and subtropics usually infects children younger than 10 years of age or adults suffering from fatigue.

Yadav explained that houseflies entered the patient's ears while he was asleep and laid larvae in the ear which later on hatched into hundreds of maggots. These maggots eventually fed on the ear’s flesh.

People with this condition may experience buzzing in their ears and observe smelly discharge. If left untreated, the condition can be detrimental to one's health since the maggots can potentially penetrate the brain or may lead to deafness.

Yadav advised:
If anybody sleep, children or old people and you see presence of houseflies, put cloth on their face so the flies don’t enter into the orifices and lay their eggs. Prevention is better.
