    They have been used in India since ages. Sushrut samhita has mentioned six types of leeches or jalauka as they are called in Sanskrit. Their best use in chronic non healing ulcers and gangrene.

    They are actually good for healing wounds. They will illuminate bacteria and replace with good one's. I come to know every living things have a purpose.
