Fucking minging pictures of a man left with seven holes in his back after undergoing cupping therapy which went dead fucking bad.

Li Li, 63, from China, was assured the treatment would help his frozen shoulder reports the People's Daily Online.

Lin had been having cupping treatment every day for around a month when large blisters appeared on his back.

He said: 'The clerk advised me to stick to cupping for a month to cure my frozen shoulder'.

In case you don't know what cupping is, or at least cupping therapy, it's when heated glass cups are applied to the skin to create suction and stimulate energy flow.

Li said that blisters began to form on his back from the locations the cups had been placed, during the last ten days.

Instead of stopping the therapy altogether, he asked his wife to pop the blisters before giving his back a good old rub with some oil.

Four days ago, Lin went for cupping treatment and on his walk back, developed a high fever. His family took him to the hospital.

Surgeon Xie Liang said that when Li was sent to the emergency room with a fever of 37.7 degrees. His back was also completely swollen.

It was discovered that he had a bacterial infection.

Doctors said that the cupping should not have been done in the same place cause it causes skin burns and infections.

As for Lin, his situation is improving and isn't considered life threatening.
