(Scroll down for video) A woman of Scotland, checked herself into a hospital after she discovered a leech inside her nose, doctors said.

24-year-old Daniela Liverani was traveling in Southeast Asia, when she began suffering persistent nosebleeds.

Liverani assumed that it was nothing more than a burst blood vessel. Days later, after she returned home to Edinburgh, she saw something sticking out of her right nostril.

She checked herself into the Royal Infirmary, where doctors discovered the leech that had been living in her nose for a month.

Liverani was taken to a treatment room where a nurse and a doctor used a torch, forceps and tweezers to remove the leech. Liverani works as a bartender at The Raeburn, according to her Facebook page.
