Dr Mundra said:

“I was very shocked to see so many eggs. This type of bug is attracted to foul smells and extremely unhygienic conditions. And as the ears and nose are areas most vulnerable and open they enter and lay eggs.

“We’ve had previous cases where they’ve had two or three eggs but this is the first time we’ve seen anyone with such a huge amount.”
