Maggot therapy for wounds


Maggot therapy is used to heal wounds. In this method, maggots or larvae of flies are allowed to eat away the dead tissue in the wound, thereby clearing it quickly and healing it in the process. It is also known as Maggot Debridement Therapy (MDT). Wounds infested with maggots heal quickly and without spread of gangrene or other infection.
