Accidentally Ate A Green Fly Egg?
Excuse me, I want to ask. This afternoon I accidentally ate a meal which contained a green fly egg. Whether the eggs will later become larvae and nest in the body or not, because of the influence of stomach acid on digestion. Besides that, how do I overcome or kill the egg so that it cannot grow in my body. Because I was very worried thinking about this continuously. And I hope for the answers that the doctor will give me. Thank you
Hello Lulung, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Previously did you make sure that the fly eggs are accidentally swallowed? Basically flies are one of the insects that are quite often encountered, especially in places where hygiene is not good. When a fly stops in the food, there is a piece of dirt attached to its body which also pollutes the food it occupies. Not infrequently the fly also takes its eggs in the food or drink.
Flies undergo 4 life cycles, namely egg-larvae-pupa-adult flies. The length of the fly's life cycle and the temperature suitable for its breeding varies between types of flies. It takes about 9-21 days for a green fly or Lucillia caesar to become an adult fly. Usually green flies will lay eggs on the surface of vegetables, carcasses or food. Furthermore, within a few days these eggs can potentially breed into larvae (maggots) to adult flies.
In the case of swallowing fly eggs, it is very unlikely that the fly eggs will multiply in the body considering that the human body has a defense system. But there are certain conditions that allow swallowed fly eggs to multiply in the body, including:
Exposed to food contained flies eggs continuously or in a long period of time. Usually in people who live in areas where hygiene is very bad.
Patients are in a condition of weak endurance
The writer is consuming ulcer drugs for a long period of time
The condition for the breeding of fly eggs in the body is also called myiasis. Although it is very rare, please note that some cases of myasis are asymptomatic, but some complain of symptoms such as:
Itching around the anus
So for now you don't need to worry. It is better to choose clean food or drinks and if you experience the complaints mentioned above, consult a doctor immediately.
So, hopefully useful
