One viewer commented: ‘I better go check all the body holes…. like nostril holes, ear holes and other holes…. haha…. so scary.’ 

But one user claimed that the parasite was not a flesh eating creature.

The commenter wrote: ‘It’s not a flesh-eater… It’s just a tick that sucks blood.

‘Many people who hike in the forest or own dogs that are allowed to play in the grass would have encountered them, even in Singapore. But still nasty.’

It is unclear what type of parasite the bug was.
