•about this yokai•
Chōumen. - "Bloating" - 脹満（ちょうまん）
an orange pustule blob with tentacles/worms popping out the top. it appears inside the abdomen: it's tentacles extend from its body and extend all over the hosts insides. it causes the victums stomach to distend & their limbs to become weak, it also makes it difficult to keep eating. (probably a good idea to stop.) Victims are unable to swallow most things, but suddenly crave cold, sour tastes and junk food. (its swirly eyes are actually more worms.)
no cure was listed, but if it is actually just gas, I'm sure you'll be fine.
One of 63 ‘KanNoMushi’ 疳の虫 (germ/parasitic Yokai) from the “Harikikigaki” 針聞書 or “the book of needles” - a tome about acupuncture & medical knowledge written in 1568 by a resident of Ibaraki City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan.
