Hello

This is Dr. Bonilla, experienced in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care.

I understand your concerns. You don't have to do anything. The maggot will be digested by the acid in the stomach. There is no risk for infection or any reaction. Let me know if you have any other questions.
