    And After the Treatment



Jiggers fleas may be tiny, but don’t be fooled by the size – once they burrow into children’s feet, they wreak huge consequences. Left untreated, they cause pus-filled sores, itchiness, disabling pain, inflammation, ulceration, gangrene, sepsis, auto-amputation, even typhoid and death. The good news is the cost of treatment is also minute – a measly £1 a foot.
