Been reading about maggot therapy for infections ; tissue & bone maggot debridement.
Prior to the discovery of penicillin in the 1930’s maggot therapy was quite common to fight serious infections. It was all but ignored with the advent in the last 90 years of numerous antibiotics.
Today Maggot therapy is beginning to make physicians take a more proactive treatment approach as infectious bacteria become more & more resistant to antibiotics.
