Insect burrows into leg of VH1 "reality show star," uses her as a human incubator.
VH1 Star -- 'I Got Laid By An Insect'

8/11/2010 9:25 AM PDT by TMZ Staff

VH1 reality star Kerry Schwartz has a sense of humor about the insect that burrowed inside of her leg and used her as a human incubator ... telling us last night, "I got laid by an insect!"

http://www.tmz.com/2010/08/11/kerry-schwartz-vh1-bug-la... /



TMZ spoke with Kerry on her way to meet with doctors at a New York hospital -- where she told us, "There's actually, like stuff ... stuffed inside of my skin right now that they have to remove ... which is why I'm here."

Kerry -- who's still in a tremendous amount of pain -- also told us doctors believe her uninvited inhabitants may have either been spiders or some sort of fly.

But the chick who won "Frank the Entertainer in a Basement Affair" says she's staying positive --"I'm thinking maybe I'll get superpowers soon ... because that's what happened to Spider-Man when he got bit."

UPDATE: TMZ has learned Kerry stayed overnight at the hospital -- after doctors decided they wanted to keep an eye on her condition. She's expected to be discharged sometime today.

4. a girlfriend from years ago
Had served a stint in the Peace Corps in Africa after between college and law school. She said she had a pimple on the back of her shoulder when she returned. After a few months, it suddenly got inflamed, so she went to her doctor. He sterilized it and then squeezed out about a two inch worm. She never had any further problems and that was the only one she had.

5. oh for pete's sake it's just a bot fly larva....
I mean, they're not fun, but they're not at all difficult to remove and just about everyone who spends time in the American tropics encounters them sooner or later, either themselves or vicariously. I've had a couple of students get them over the years, never had one myself though (likewise malaria!). They keep the wound quite clean.
