There many bugs that lay eggs under the skin such as bed bugs, bot fly, and human screw worm.

● Bed Bugs
Bed bugs also known as cimex lectularius. It is perhaps the one of the most common bugs which lays eggs on human. It likes to hang out in beds, mattresses, pillow cases, cracks in the walls, electrical outlets and even in picture frames. They have an unpleasant oil-like smell and they can be carried into your homes by clothes, furniture and luggage and sometimes even people. They are parasites and suck human blood. The female bed bugs can lay up to five eggs per day and can even lay ten eggs during summer and warm weather. It usually bites and the wound becomes infected. It can bite on just about anywhere in the body, but it usually targets arms and legs. Initially, the sting cannot be felt at first, the sensation is akin to the skin's reaction to injection. There are people who are even allergic to its bites.

● Bot fly
These species are mostly found in Central and South America. Bot flies have different varieties and each target a particular animal. The Human Bot Fly lays egg on a mosquito or a horsefly which will subsequently land on human skin. The eggs can grow in the human body like a worm in the tear duct and even in the brain.

● Human screw worm
It is scientifically known as cochliomyia homnivorax. They live in tropical, warm and humid places like Central and South America and the Caribbean Islands. They used to exist in the United States and Mexico, but thanks to the sterile insect technique, these bugs no longer exist in these two countries. The human screw worm punctures the skin and through the wound, it lays its eggs. If the person is infected, dark brown discharge will come out from the wound and it usually has an unpleasant smell. Correspondingly, it results in tissue irritation.

As such, if you suspect of being bitten by any of these bugs, it is highly recommended to consult your doctor immediately. Similarly, it is highly advisable to check bedding of your hotel rooms and cruise ship cabins and the common bugs' infestation of the place you are going to visit.

There are some flies that have been known to do this, only one the  Wohlfahrtia flies is in the upper north america.  Usually these insect target wounds but some (botfly) target animals including humans by laying their eggs on mosquitos which then get in the animal when the mosquitos bites.  These are so rare to end up in the US that most doctors don't seem to believe the person when it happens.  Try this site.  ambergriscaye.com
