Many women have a habit of wearing a hair band on their wrist.
But are you aware that although this habit seems to be harmless, can be very deadly.
Audree Kopp will share her experience.
One night Audree Kopp went to bed wearing her hair band on her wrist. The next morning she woke up with a strange bump which later became seriously infected.
She was immediately operated to prevent sepsis- a dangerous and lethal complication caused by infection.
“It just kept getting bigger, and redder, and worse,” said Kopp.
After this, she warned other people via Facebook:
“3 bacteria …. Strep, staph, AND poly negative. I want to inform everyone to make sure no one else has to go through this! The GLITTER hair band is the one that caused the problem.”
So what should we do to protect ourselves or our loved ones?
Doctors recommend washing the hair bands regularly. If you cannot do this, then at least try to avoid wearing them on your wrist for a longer period of time!
