Did that title scar you for life? Of course it did. Buckle up, it’s going to get worse.
Congrats for being brave enough to look though. Maybe it’s deeply disturbing but we know the story has a happy ending! Nothing better than knowing that the six-inch worm was removed and the princess lived happily ever!
This story provides a huge range of emotions, but mostly? Disgust. Just complete and absolute disgust.
So, the likely-to-never-be-named victim of this horrible worm is a Russian woman. It seems likely that this poor woman contracted the parastic round-worm when she was bitten by a mosquito.
The worm began its disgusting little life living in the woman’s eyelid.
But that wasn’t the end of the worm’s adventuring! OH NO.
This bad boy was on a world tour of this poor woman’s face and the next stop? Wormy McWorm Face took up residence in this woman’s cheekbones. Wriggled his way right on in there.
The worm, having completed his cheekbone residency then moved to the woman’s lip… I guess with all the lip-filler trends currently whizzing around on social media the woman probably looked kind of on trend for a little while… Finally. The worm gave a little something back to its victim.
Another upside of the worm moving to the ladies lips was, MERCIFULLY, doctors were finally able to extract the little beastie from the woman’s face.
