Maggots are used to clean and promote healing .
6. 1980

Maggot therapy has been around since the early 19th century. during the Napoleonic Wars, doctors found that wounds healed more quickly, with less infection, when the wounds were infested with maggots. The treatment fell out of favor with the advances in antibiotics and modern surgery.
However, some very reputable doctors still use these parasites to clean out dead tissue from bedsores, gangrene, leg ulcers and other stubborn infections.
