They immediately took Amor to the doctor where they got worried when the doctor didn’t even know about Amor’s condition. And they were requested to go home.
Amor’s father, Junior believes in aswangs and he decided to call a healer. They called Lazarus, the healer who diagnosed Amor’s disease. He told them that Amor is infected by venom that enters the body through ears. Lazarus also suggested pinning a piece of garlic on Amor’s clothes as the aswangs could be near. Junior also decided to keep a copper knife with himself all the time, as aswangs are afraid of copper.
