So gross!! Doctors are warning people who wear eyelash extensions to make sure they are cleaned regularly. Doctors are warning they have noticed an increase in lash lice. Eeew!
This type of lice is smaller than head lice or body lice, this type of lice can jump and be transferred.
Look out for symptoms, if you see or feel redness, itchiness and inflammation you should seek treatment. Treatments include topical ointments, tea tree oil and proper hygiene.
Doctors are not advising against the extensions, they are just encouraging all to be mindful in making sure you clean the lash extensions on a regular basis to avoid the lash lice.
