Doctors trust that a free-loader larvae went into his nose, where it eventually hatched and grew into an inch-long leech.


Pan reportedly asked Dr. Liu because he didn’t feel any pain when a free-loader trustworthy itself to his nostril, to that a medicine replied that free-loader spit contains both pain-killer and anticoagulant properties, so a usually conspicuous symptoms are a consistent nosebleeds.
