She had many bugs lined up underneath her nails, in the scales. They were all dug out as scales were debrided. It is a process where jiggers are killed from the skin of the host by a scalpel as those back in the house and surroundings are killed by disinfectants. In some cases (like this one) there's need to buy bedding and even cement the floors and walls. This video is intended for educational purposes and to raise awareness of the health problems that jiggers cause in Africa. MEDICAL CONDITION: The condition depicted is known as "Tungiasis". It is an infestation of the skin by a burrowing flea. These fleas tend to infest those who have inadequate living conditions and sanitation. The flea lives both outside around warm-blooded mammals and inside poorly constructed homes. It inhabits dust on floors, cracks in walls and bedding. Shoes protect to some degree but are often not affordable or adequate. Email Jim directly jim@killthejigger.org Call Jim - +254723323186 Donate through PayPal - killthejigger.org/donate.php
