Thanks Norm for sending me this story. From digtriad.com;
Greensboro, NC — What started as a trip to the beauty salon to get her hair braided, ended with two trips to the emergency room, according to Veronica Carter.
Carter said at first she liked her braids, which took about six hours to get done.
But a few weeks later, that changed.
“I got up and I was crying in the middle of the night and I was praying and crying like God please don’t let me die,” said Carter.
“The braid came out and it was like a little white bump,” she said. “The headaches became just on one side and it was migraines and it was like a heat sensation.”
“My whole face was swollen, my eye was absolutely shut,” said Carter.
She went to the emergency room twice and paperwork she was given on the second visit states she may have MRSA, an infection that doesn’t respond to the usual antibiotics. She said she is taking four antibiotics, though.
“He told me it’s because the braids was too tight,” said Carter about her hospital visit. “He said her nails, anything up under the nail, if her nails was sharp or if she took it and tried to braid it and maybe cut me right here and I didn’t notice it.”
