Sucked, natural healers themselves fall off. After placing leeches at home, the fallen off specimens should be carefully placed in a jar of clean water. Apply a sterile napkin, a topical swab and a bandage to the suction sites. Leave the bandage for at least 12 hours, after all, after sucking, blood may appear - this is normal, and it should not be frightened.
