With just a few strokes, the comb had gathered numerous lice that are very visible in the camera. Some people commented that the lice might have already made their nests in the locks of the little girl, while some also speculate on how her case of pediculosis even reached such stage. The parasite can be seen crawling over each other.

According to Dr Alejandra Perotti of University of Reading’s School of Biological Sciences, while the infestation is common Europe and UK, it is not to such extent. While is is not clear when the video was taken, it was uploaded on August 5, 2013 and still gathers views and gives shivers down the spines of the viewers.
