All leeches have two suckers — one on each end of its body — and the mouth end has hundreds of teeth. When applied to an injury or reattached limb, leeches dig their teeth right into the flesh and start sucking. Surprisingly, the bite doesn't seem to hurt. That's because leech saliva contains a natural anesthetic, or pain-killer.

This young boy was minding his own business when he felt an eye irritation. Thinking that it was just regular dust, he started to rub his eye, in an effort to remove the dust. Then his eyes got really red, so his mom bought some eye drops from the pharmacy.
Again they dismissed it as dust & continued rubbing, hoping it would go away. As the days went by, the swelling of his eye got worse & the redness increased until his mom decided it was time to go and see a doctor for a check up. The doctor immediately wanted an operation, being afraid of a tumor growth or cyst.

A furuncle with a central pore develops as the bot matures, molting twice until reaching 18 to 24 mm.
