A Chinese woman did not wash her pillowcase for 5 years and found out that there were more than 100 mites living in her eyelashes.
This woman, named Xu lives in Hubei, China, and has been experiencing itchiness and redness in her eyes for years.
Despite her symptoms, she did not seek doctor’s attention but tried to help herself with off the shelf eye drops.
However, conditions of her eyes started to get really bad and her family took her to the doctors.
At the hospital, the doctor discovered that Xu had more than 10 mites residing in each of her lash follicles, estimated to be more than 100 mites altogether.
She was diagnosed with conjunctivitis and blepharitis, a condition caused by a bacterial infection caused by mites living in her lashes.
It was found that she never changed her pillowcase for five years, and the doctor is suspecting that mites migrated from the pillow to her eyelashes.
She received proper treatment and fully recovered from her condition.
