Maggots found in man's head

Бугорки (шишки), кожа головы, личинки, овод, бежать по венам (о крови), организм-хозяин, питающий паразитов,

A US holidaymaker got a nasty surprise when he discovered the lumps on his scalp were live maggots.
Aaron Dallas, from Colorado, US, sought medical advice when the bumps appeared on his scalp after a trip to Belize.
But it was not until the bumps started moving that doctors realized Dallas had five live botfly maggots inside his head.

"I'd put my hand back there and feel them moving. I thought it was blood coursing through my head," said Dallas. "I could hear them. I actually thought I was going crazy."
Adult bot flies are larger and more aggressive than European flies. One type attacks livestock, deer and humans.
They rely on mosquitoes, stable flies, and other insects to carry their eggs to a host, which in this case was Dallas.
"It was weird and traumatic," said Dallas. "I would get this pain that would drop me to my knees."

Guess the word by its definition:

  • very shocking and upsetting, and causing psychological damage (adj.)
  • an opinion you give someone about what they should do (noun)
  • behaving in an angry, threatening way, as if you want to fight or attack someone (adj.)

Запомню назло всем:
