This woman had to undergo a very painful yet difficult procedure on her foot. Jim Nduruchi uploaded this nasty infection showing us exactly what had to be done when it’s as bad as this.
This foot infection will give your gag reflex a tickle when you watch someone trying to remove some Jiggers. Luckily, this has not been seen here in our state but is common and seen in poor areas like Africa, South America and the Caribbean Islands. According to Fleabites.net, the woman in the video above is suffering from a sand flea disease. They say it’s safe to wear shoes on the beach to prevent this from happening. To have a better understanding, the explanation of the life cycle is also on that link. If you’re paranoid like myself anyways, always remember to keep shoes on even in the states beaches.
Hopefully this video doesn’t completely scare you away from any beach!
