Fake images of holes in skin to terrify people been viral for long.

Spread the truth:

A set of image has been viral for few years, mostly on WhatsApp which is quite horrific, gives goosebumps.
The message has photo of a bug with small circles on it’s back and claims if someone touch this incest, he/she will get holes in skin as shown in another image of Hands and fingers.
“This insect, if touched can bite and infest u with a virus causing such holes etc in your skin”

TRUTH: Although this gives shivers which it is meant to but this is a Giant male bug carrying eggs which does bite like regular insects only.
The photos of palm/fingers are merely photoshopped & makeup and is meant to exaggerate Trypophobia’ i.e. fear from holes in skin or skull or bones as shown in movies which it has succeed
