Why do worms come in the nose?

Doctors say that there is moisture in the nostrils. Nose douching should be practiced to keep the nose clean. Otherwise, the foul-smelling secretions attract germs that lay eggs in the nose. They later turn into insects. This problem is called nasal miosis. According to an NCBI report, nasal miosis is a condition in which fly larvae invade the nostrils. It damages the tissue in the affected area. Nasal miosis can lead to many life-threatening complications.
There is a risk of going into the brain.


Doctors say that if these worms are not identified and removed early, they can enter the brain and damage the tissue. There is a direct connection to the eye and the brain, if there are worms in the eye, there is a risk of faster infection.
There is danger in these parts too..


According to the research of Journal of Nepal Medical Association 2021.. such worms (maggots) are also likely to come in nose, ear, orbit, tracheostomy wound, face, gums, serous cavities. It is stated that if the patients have different types of injuries and comorbidities, they attract maggots more.

The victim was treated elsewhere for eye inflammation three months ago. Even though it did not go away.. once again swelling in her eye along with other troublesome symptoms appeared. So she was admitted to SS Sparsh Hospital. At that time the left eye was completely closed.
