Not only would i use them, but I have done so and still do on anything i consider to need stitches or more. I personally feel they are the most
effecdtive method of treating such things, yeah the first time it seems a little gross, but once you get over our modern views of medicine and the
strange feeling they produce, then I'd guess you would never go back to modern medicine again. The only thing to be careful of is don't all go
rushing out grabbing any of the little critters you find, as not all maggots feed entiely on dead flesh. If you stick to blowfly lavae then you'll be
fine, and as for getting them out well thats also easy, just wait a couple of days to a week or so (depending on how many you use, and the size of the
wound) then simply remove the covering and pick them out with tweezers or your fingers.
